Arabic language problem in mandriva
I'm running mandriva 2006 on a pentium processor,
My problem is with the arabic language support,
I've added the arabic keyboard layout, and installed many arabic fonts, but when I switch to the arabic keyboard, I find my writings distorted, also when I open my arabic text files I get them distorted. gnome applications and the openoffice write in arabic the letters are disconnected.
In windows there were a tool (regional settings in the control panel) to add or remove character encodings, which solve this problem in windows, is there an equivalent tool in mandriva?
