Polish messages in linux and windows XP

I have JSP application in jakarta struts framework running on windows on XP and Red Hat Linux
This is Internationalization application in English and Polish language.

Application accessing SAP .
Messages from SAP in polish language are coming properly in Windows XP.

But messages in Linux system are corrupted in their special characters or getting Question marks most of the times.
I understand from the log4j logs the messages are corupted.

I have set ISO-8859-2 in JSP page for charset.

<%@ page contentType="text/html;charset=ISO-8859-2" %>

I have set encoding attribute in web.xml as below
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-2"?>

This is working on Windows XP.

Is there any special handling to be done on linux system for getting polish messages from SAP.
I mean installing or enabling any special fonts/code page.

Well, yes, of course, you need to make sure that you have Eastern European fonts installed.

Well, have you got access to any software repositories? I'm on Debian right now and I see that there is a set called "xfonts-Biznet" that covers ISO-8859-2.

If you find that the charset cannot be installed from a repository,then you can find information about different versions of the set and how to install them here:
