Warning: Can't read AppletViewer properties file

I’m working on a java applet and have successfully imported my project that’s on my ntfs partition (it’s mounted with write rights), however the applet acts a little different under openSUSE then it did under Vista.

First, after I hit the run hotkey (f11) it asked me if wanted to run it as an applet or application, so I hit application and the applet runs… however Eclipse puts out the following in the console

Warning: Can't read AppletViewer properties file: /home/Pascal/.hotjava/properties Using defaults.

And my applet isn’t scaling like it should (it does under Windows Vista/eclipse, so I can only assume the error is to blame)

Software used

  • openSUSE 11.1 beta 5 (x86_64)
  • Eclipse 3.4.0
  • KDE 4.1.3.
  • JDK 1_6_0

[EDIT]:
Just checked if I even had /home/Pascal/.hotjava/ dir… I don’t
