Display Chinese and Japanese Characters in Team Fortress 2

Playing TF2 on Linux is great, but Japanese characters fail to display by default. I found the following font package allows Chinese and Japanese characters to be displayed.

On Ubuntu 16.10:

sudo apt install fonts-wqy-zenhei

Other distros or older Ubuntu versions may refer to this package as “wqy-zenhei”.

The description of fonts-wqy-zenhei states this is a Chinese font, but it works for Japanese characters (Hiragana and Katakana) as well.

Please note this still does not fix the Japanese input issue.
