Hi Dear friends,

I'm working on Java-GUI implementation in Ubuntu. Used font-type in the application throughout is "Arial". At earlier stage of application it was the same font-type("Arial"). As the implementation grew the font-type has been changed automatically to another font type. It seems Serif-font type.

Now I could not able to figure out the problem; why it is so.

Note- I used HTML code also for setting font style of Dialog box messages and buttons. This is the only point which I figured out. Can it is ??

Any help towards it would be really appreciated.


Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the Ranch

What look'n'feel are you using? Are you setting the font anywhere, and if so, how?

Thanks you very much Campbell Ritchie.

I installed the font style on Ubuntu PC. Then the problem has been shorted out.

Ubuntu Software Center -> ttf-mscorefonts
