Font not available error on Linux

Hi Team
I am facing a strange problem on Linux Red Hat. My client GUI works perfectly fine on Windows and Solaris. However if i run it on Linux, though it runs but it also throws the following error on the prompt:
Font specified in font.properties not found
Strage thing is that i have not set any font in the GUI. I am using the default implementation of Swings.
Any solution for this ???

I had the same problem with Mandrake 8.1. I didn't really investigate, since my development platform was Windows 2000 Pro; I was just checking to see if everything worked on different platforms. I think the problem has to do with X Window and not swing. It's been a few years since I worked with X, but I think you'll have to physically install those fonts, otherwise X is just going to give you a system monospace font.
Hope this is helpful,
Michael Morris

I had a similar problem with fonts on Red Hat Linux, and the workaround was to replace the font.properties files as described in:
