Without ttf-dejavu installed, the breeze theme falls back to an unknown and rather unpleasant monospace font. Ideally the breeze theme would use the Noto fonts but that might be an upstream bug. I suppose this bug is a minor nitpick, so if it's a not-our-problem feel free to close it. Thanks!

Additional info:
* package version(s) 0.17.0-4
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
Install sddm on a barebones installation, without any special fonts.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Not a bug
Additional comments about closing:  fontconfig has never been automagically configured, if you want the noto fonts then symlink their configurations from conf.avail just like anything else. Also see the Font configuration wiki page...
