i didn't find any font named marlett.ttf in my vista installation... but i copied all fonts from vista (that are under 1mb) to ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/fonts/ and the console (and buddy notifications) now look good. so i dont know what the right font is. but definetly not marlett.ttf.

I undid this change, because I have multiple arch installs (none with samba installed), and steam works fine on them. winehq doesn't have anything about this either Thestinger 13:59, 20 August 2010 (EDT)
When installing steam it couldn't connect with the steam server and when run from the terminal it would mention something to do with ntlm_auth being absent or out of date. http://wiki.winehq.org/NtlmAuthSetupGuide this said samba contained the required file.
To test I removed samba though pacman and once again steam would not connect to the server and crashed, the terminal gave this output:
err:ntlm:SECUR32_initNTLMSP ntlm_auth was not found or is outdated. Make sure that ntlm_auth >= 3.0.25 is in your path. err:ntlm:SECUR32_initNTLMSP Usually, you can find it in the winbind package of your distribution.
That you can run steam fine without samba suggests that there is another source for this file?
