i play poker at dynamitepoker.com and it uses java
anyways all the fonts look a little weird and the typing boxes are a little messed up cuz when i type it looks like all of it is a little offplaced to the bottom so i can only see like the top half of the text
is there anyway to fix this issue and maybe use a different font in the java window???
I don't think that is true. I took it to mean that the fonts in firebird work well with java. It was a suggestion to try another browser to see if it solves the font problem.
But I do agree with you about Ford vs. Honda posts that do not address the original question. All through life we experience these question and responses. How can I better my bike--replace the frame, tires, handlebars etc. How can I speed up my computer--throw it away and buy another one. It's very annoying.
In my opinion there are tons of browsers to use but there are only a select few that are worth while because of what they support. I like Mozilla a lot because its basicaly netscape, which is very widely supported, now IE would be my number one choice for a browser but since theyre isnt an IE for linux i chose mozilla, and now they have mozilla firebird which i am very happy with. It was just my opinion and i didnt even tell them to go out and get it i was just saying that it was a good browser in case they were looking for suggestions. and now i see that i typed Mozills instead of Mozilla, dont i feel silly
well this wasn't very usfull but uh.... let me just say i am trying to get java working for fire fox and it keeps sayin it needs to download it (and it going to do this for me) and it does and it installs it and it tells me that i need to restart fire fox hell i even restarted linux
but it keeps doing the same damn thing and its getting kinda anoying cuz i wana play my java enable game plz some useful advice would be helpfull
well i dont know if you have suns java or what but i never had much luck with that so i use the www.blackdown.org java and i think 1.4.1 is the best one i had trouble with 1.4.2 dont know if theyve fixed yet or not. but afte ryou uncompress it you need to make a symlink from the javaplugin_oji file in the java1.4.1 directory to the plugins directory of your browser. if you need me to do a step by step just let me know. im not sure if you can understand what i wrote, im not a good explainer
well alot of my browsers do work
but unfortuannly the text in the text boxes under the poker applet i play is really offplaced and i can't see it (just the top of the charachters)
is this browser dependent or would another browser actually help?
so far i have the same problem in epiphany konqueror and mozilla
so i am guessing it is not browser dependent ........
maybe a config file in some java directory?????
eck i keep having the same problem too. jre 1.3.1_01 in opera, mozilla, and galeon.. same thing, all 3 browsers.
still cant figure out why. trying to get to the bottom of it though. the jre seems to work fine with overnet and limewire. i ll keep you posted on whatever i may find ^_^
i dont think u can simply change sth in your java configuration to get the applet being displayed correctly. did u report that to dynamitepoker? should be their issue to change the source code of the applet so it is displayed right on various os. what java version do u use?
