I have developed a swing application, i have some issues with application font!!

My development environment :

OS : Fedora 13

Java Version :
java version "1.6.0_22"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_22-b04)
Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 17.1-b03, mixed mode)

ISSUE :
On Fedora (my system) application font looks (normal) ok
but when i tried to run the same app on different OS : Ubuntu , the Font looked a bit bold than what it did on Fedora...

How can this be fixed?

Thanks in advance

Fonts, by default, are specified by the LAF. What LAF are you using?
Usually, it is a good idea to specify the System LAF so that your application feels more "native" to the end user, without you ever needing to change any code.
