So im trying to call the dispose method in this class by writing
1  
Pixmap.dispose():

but this error comes up: Cannot make a static reference to the non-static method dispose() from the type Pixmap
So as i go to change the dispose() method to a static method i get this error: Illegal modifier for the interface method dispose; only public & abstract are permitted
Is there any work around to this?

This is the pixmap class

public interface Pixmap {
    public int getWidth();

    public int getHeight();

    public PixmapFormat getFormat();

    public void dispose();
}

You need an instance of a class implementing the Pixmap interface.

Reread what Abuse said. An instance of a class that implements Pixmap, not an instance of Pixmap. Learn basic OOP before trying to deal with pixmaps; if you're trying to instantiate a interface like that...
