good, free, fixed width font for linux?

when ive tried my plugin on linux (using kde),
the Jframe and its contents did not look as expected.
It displays correctly on windows. the plugin is using "Courier New" as font and I suspect "Courier New" is a proprietary font of MS. is it true? If that is the case, whats good, free (distributable), fixed font i can use as an alternative to "Courier New"? I want it to look consistent in all other OS. Thanks!

I use Lucida Console. Bitstream Vera Mono looks nice too. You can also use Courier New on Linux, if you find the font file online and figure out how to install it for your distribution.
