This is a JDK / KDE issue not JDK / linux.
If I remember correctly, things like auto code completion etc in
Jbuilder 4 wouldn't work, and Together Control Studio had issues too.
Most, if not all were remidied by using Gnome. I believe also that the
new 1.4 JDK has improved lots of Swing issues, but you might need to
rebuild the bytecode for Jedit.
Instead of Forte, use Netbeans (open source, what Forte is based on),
I've been using Netbeans under Win32 :-( , and linux :-) (RH 7.2) with
jdk1.3.1_01 for a while now with almost no issues, (apart from the
scroll wheel on my mouse not working, but this is fixed in jdk1.4, which
I can't use at present. Also you can build 1.3 bytecode using the 1.4
jdk using some tag to the javac command. I'll build netbeans as soon as
I have a chance and see if the scroll button works as promised.
(from a windows 2000 machine which I have to reboot almost every day
because of memory leaks. :-( )
