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with the steam server and when run from the terminal it would mention something to do with ntlm_auth being absent or out of date.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err:ntlm:SECUR32_initNTLMSP ntlm_auth was not found or is outdated.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? Dinosaw 11:21, 24 August 2010 (BST)
