Hello managers,

i asked:
>i have a user who is working with java-applets. He has a simple
>applet ("Hello World") which he can view with the appletviewer
>under Solaris 2.6, if he is sitting in front of the console-screen.
>If he does exactly the same sitting at a Xterminal (we tried at least
>two different types) the appletviewer dumps core.
>Now my brain rings a bell on "appletviewer", but i can't remember
>what it was nor have i found something in the docs...
>So, what's the difference running java on a console or a xterminal
>(something analogous to "display postscript"?)

and got one answer from (Thomas Anders) which solved
the problem for me:

>We had similar problems with Netscape on X-Terminals dumping core when
>starting Java. We tracked it down to missing fonts and cured it by using
>a Solaris fontserver:
> xset fp+ tcp/solarixbox:7100

And the best: Solaris Fontserver is per default enabled, so i really
had nothing else to do than this "xset"!

With regards,
