Bad looking fonts in DeVis 23.2.2 on Arch Linux (Steam Deck)

I recently installed the latest version of DbVis on a Steam Deck (Arch Linux) and it looked really bad.  


From the Arch Wiki, there's a page addressing fonts in a java JRE

It suggested Environment variables for turning on support for anti-aliasing. 


 I instead used the command in the Java VM overrides like this:
Tools -> Tool Properties -> General -> Specify overridden Java VM Properties here:


After a quick restart, font's look SO much better.

Tool configuration with anti-aliasing


SQL Editor with Anti-Aliasing


Hope this helps somebody else.
