Swing apps grayed out by Compiz

There’s a known bug that lies between Swing and Compiz. When you start some swing application on JDK 5 or prior you get a gray window with no widgets rendered.

To solve that you can setup an environment variable:

export AWT_TOOLKIT=MToolkit

Then start your application normally.

The problem is fixed on JDK 6.
