Swing and custom fonts

Hello,

I installed the Chess Alpha 2 Font on my computer. When I set it as the font for a Swing component all my components hierarchy takes longer to display it self. I have a white background for like 3 seconds before everything appears. Is that normal and how to fix it?

Also, considering that this Font is not system-default, if I wanted to distribute my application how do I proceed?

Thanks.

Just another cross poster who doesn't have the courtesy to inform here that the problem is solved.

I created that topic after I didn't get replies here. No one was hurt.

Not yet maybe. However, if you get an answer here someone on the other forum (or vice versa) may still be trying to help you out even though you don't need it anymore. There are people who really dislike wasting their time, and will then not help you a next time.
