Previously, I submitted a question regarding the using Lucid 5.1.1 (and 5.2) with a specific application (http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=60552).

However after some research on other sites, I was told:
1) "The # prompt suggests that someone is trying to run Spoon as root. Besides that fact that I don't think that's a good idea there's probably no display defined for that user either."

2) "it seems to me like it was font related. Be sure to install ttf font support and the usual M$ font package, maybe there's a specific font like arial referenced in the splash screen." The line of code in question was, "licFont = new Font(e.display, "Helvetica", licFontSize, SWT.NORMAL); //$NON-NLS-1$ e.gc.setFont(licFont);"

What are the core differences between 4.3.1 and 5.2 with respect to fonts supported? Does 5.2 have the same font packages as 4.3.1? Is the way Java is processed any different between the 2 versions?

I really like 5.2's interface and it's improved support for peripherals, but it just doesn't want to work with Pentaho Data Integration. Very frustrating. Puppy 4.3.1 has been working for me, but I would really like to move up. Thanks.

Downloaded all 4 Helvetica fonts to my /usr/share/fonts/default/TTF folder and wham!! PDI opened up like champ. I cannot believe it was that simple!
