    Default Fonts ugly in java 1.6.0_14

    Since the upgrade to opensuse sun jdk 1.6.0_14 a few days ago, font in Java applications (jedit, netbeans) is very ugly, hard to read. Fonts in other applications not affected.
    I downloaded and installed sun jdk 1.6.0_14 locally, using it the fonts are fine (same font, monospace 12), same as they were on system jdk before upgrade.
    Any clues how to correct fonts on opensuse sun jdk? Thank you!

    Not sure if you are facing this issue. It was commented on openSUSE mailing
    list:

    [opensuse] Java update killed font anti-aliasing (11.1)

    Thank you for the responses. Unfortunately I would rather not switch to openjdk as the target platform I am developing for uses Sun jdk. I'll try to delve a bit more into how OpenSuse manages fonts.

    I'm on Java 1.6.0-17 and openSUSE 11.2. Fonts look OK to me, unless I'm not looking in the right places.

    Interestingly enough, my fonts were REALLY messed up on openJDK, so be sure that your app is not pointing to an openJDK JVM.
