DejaVu Sans: broken layout

I unlinked /etc/fonts/conf.d/30-metric-aliases.conf. Same outcome, layout is not preserved since no metric compatible font for Arial is available.

In principle there's no difference wrt word processing unless Liberation is shipped by default. The same holds for TimesNewRoman→{LiberationSerif|Times→Nimbus Serif}.

BTW: fc-match <fontname> is useful for this.
