Well, the thing is, the font that replaces it needs to not only be similar to Arial, be almost completely identical to Arial. If you can find a font that provides that, that could be a solution.
Liberation Sans, Chrome OS Core Fonts (Croscore), and FreeSans are metric compatible. @DynamicVoid Carlito (from Croscore) is a replacement for Calibri, which is Microsoft's replacement for Arial.
edit: I would prefer steam to not depend on any font
Bump, as we have a couple of possible fonts. Liberation Sans or FreeSans are probably the best options. Here's an AUR package that esentially does the exact same thing we're trying to do: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/fake-ms-fonts/
I would do it, but my bash scripting level is -1. So is my eopkg knowledge level.
I don't see where the problem is since the whole Phabricator needs this kind of moderation but anyway, sorry for that.
Bump for this. Even Team Fortress 2 text is jagged and bigger than normal.
Edit: ah damn sorry. I used "out" instead of "up". Didn't know "out" was much worse and different. Sorry again.
