Java Swing font anti-aliasing w/o desktop environment

Discussion in 'Java' started by Taylor Venable, Nov 9, 2007.

  1. Hello all,

    With the newer versions of Java your Swing apps can look extra pretty
    thanks to font smoothing. When using Ubuntu (as I am) the builtin
    desktop environment configurations set this up for you - when running
    GNOME, KDE, or XFCE it looks great. But I choose to run my .xsession
    file instead, which loads FVWM. And somewhere along the line something
    isn't set right and I don't get pretty smoothed fonts in my Swing apps.
    I checked environment variables and I can't see it there, so I'm
    thinking it may be an X resource? I don't know; if anybody has any
    ideas on which knob I can twiddle to get the pretty fonts back, I'd
    greatly appreciate it!

    Best regards.
