Yes there is, I am guessing you're using Beryl. in your terminal,

nano /usr/local/bin/java

Then paste the code:
#! /bin/bash
XLOCALELIBDIR=/usr/lib32/X11/locale/ AWT_TOOLKIT=MToolkit /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-su
n- ${*}

Hit CTRL + x, Save and Exit then:

chmod +x /usr/local/bin/java

Now you should be able to see your java application in beryl.... hope it helps.

I am having similar problems. The default remote desktop works on terminal :0 but I installed vncserver so I can run this box headless and I can't get it to work - it delivers the empty grey herringbone pattern that plagues many initial VNC setups. Ubuntu does not generate an xstartup file like vnc did in my Fedora installations. I tried adding an xstartup file but to no avail so far.

Any further suggestions. I looked through the posts here but haven't found any that work for me so far.
