Thank you, maybe it is not the best method, but it works ;-)
But, as I can not satisfy with simple things, I would want defoma (or
something else) to give me the name of an alternate font (looking quite
like to), in case of the DejaVuSans font does not exist for my locale.
The trouble is this game has been translated into Russian and could be
in Arabic too. What mechanisms exists to get the name of related fonts
in non  latin alphabet ?
