Howto change Netbeans IDE Font


I'm using Mandrake 10.1 for 2 weeks ago, and I have installed Netbeans IDE to program in Java.

The problem is that the fonts are very ugly.

Can anybody help me to change that? I would like to add new fonts.

I assume you're using Netbeans 4.0. Install your font, open Netbeans, go to Tool --> Options --> Editing --> Editor Settings and choose which part of the IDE's font you want to change, and set it at the Properties's Fonts & Colors.

I'm still using Netbens 3.6 because I began working on my project a few months ago and I wouldn't like to change the IDE at the midle of the project.

I've just installed some windows fonts using 'Import' from Mandrake Control Center (MCC), but I can't see them using "Fonts & Colors settings" of Netbeans.

When I'm using OpenOffice I can see them (verdana, courier new ...)

But not in Netbeans.

Could this be a problem of the netbeans version?
