worked with no mods on regular linux x86_64, just install before steam client

can this package be integrated directly into the steam build?

With the recent release of the steam link app for raspberry pi's, this package is now useful on the ARM architecture.

Please set arch=('any') in the PKGBUILD to allow raspberry pi users to take advantage of this package.

Not use the -f in fc-cache, either can cause system freeze and is discouraged/not standard package guideliness for fonts in arch[1][2][3]
