Please take a look at the following Java applet:

It is supposed to show some mathematical stuff with vertices and edges. The only thing I see is unfortunately one yellow dot.

In Windows with Sun Java 6 it works fine. In Ubuntu Natty with IcedTea (OpenJDK) it doesn't. It could well be down to the version of Java you have installed - try replacing OpenJDK with Sun's Java version.

To get Sun's Java you will need to make sure the Partner repository is enabled in Software Sources.
