barbecue in unix environment

Im using barbecue1.5 for generating barcodes and it works good in windows and unix.

my issue is, in the unix environment the id is not included in generated image. if i execute the same program in windows env, i will get the barcode image with the id below the image. I would like to have the id as part of the generated image in unix env as well. Is there any easy to resolve this issue ?

When I say "id" , its the string I'm passing to BarcodeFactory to generate the barcode.

Are you able to look at the source code for the id generation and see where it uses something windows specific?

i tried to print java.awt.headless in Linux and it returned null, seems to be a bug

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
