jEdit in Ubuntu - is something wrong?

Having heard rave reviews of it, I installed jEdit under 7.10 to evaluate as a 
programmer's editor.  This in itself required some jumping through hoops, and 
when I finally got there I was rather less than whelmed by it.  Never mind 
that loads of the much-vaunted plugins won't install, it's the general 
appearance of the thing that is appalling.  The font rendering gives me a 
headache.  Am I doing something wrong?  Is there something I need to know?  I 
can manage without jEdit but then I've yet to find an editor that suits my 
purposes precisely and I want to believe the good things I've heard about
