    Default Java Crossplatform Behavior

    I am evaluating a couple of graphics products from vendors and am running them on a PC (Windows XP), PC (Linux centOS), and Sun Solaris. The IDE I am using is Eclipse (latest version for each platform). I am also running Java 1.6.0_XX on each of the platforms.

    Ok, here is the problem I am experiencing. When I run a demo program on the Windows PC or Solaris, it runs fine. When I run the program on some centOS PC's it also runs fine. But unfortunately, the centOS PC that I am developing on seems to not quite work properly.

    The program is suppose to display 3 graphs (with a legend identifying the lines). Two of the graphs are line graphs the third is a bar chart. I am providing this info just for information because I am sure someone would want to know. The problem is not with the program, it is something with the environment. Only 1 of the graphs displays on the problem centOS machine, and the legend does not contain the proper graphics also.

    The question is: If I am running the same version of software, then why does it not run properly on the centOS machine (and only certain ones on top of that). Could it be the graphics card? Has anyone else experienced this sort of problem running the same application on different platforms? Or even similar platforms, but different PC hardware?

    Any help is appreciated. I am pulling out what little hair I have left!!!!

    Thanks.

    could be the different system fonts available to the x windowing environment?

    I don't think it is the fonts since the text items seem to appear ok. Just the line drawing parts do not show up.
