Hi everybody, I hope someone is still reading this thread.
I also got the problem of colors on my Ubuntu 8.04 running Java 1.6.0_07 from Sun Microsystems and Gnome. (system is up to date )
PersonalBrain is a very good program and I want to use it, but colors are very important for me to distinguish type of thoughts.
If I try to set colors either in 'Properties & Attachments' or in 'Preferences' window, nothing freezes but nothing happens.
Less important issue is that of setting themes : doesn't work, nothing happens.
I realized that neither in Freemind, an opensource mindmapper written in java, color setting works; so it can be a problem between Gnome and Java virtual machine. I don't want to change to KDE because Gnome is a very good desktop environment already configured for me and all other application are integrated with it very well.
Have someone tryed to run another java virtual machine for Linux, for example that from Blackdown ? ..I shall..
Thanks, hope we shall resolve this
(sorry for my quite poor english, school memories)
