Whenever I run an applet on a linux system (this one happens to be "linspire") the text items are all too big for their containers. This is not just for my own applets but also for the "test your java" demo on the "get it now" website. It occurs both with for the jre that came with the system and with the 1.4.2_06 version that I just updated to (and which the test applet recognizes as being installed).
I noticed the same thing years ago on another linux box and assumed it would eventually get fixed - but apparently not!
Does anyone have any idea how to deal with this?
