If you are just starting with Linux, it's probably
still time to go back and run a different distribution.
Try Suse or Mandrake.
I am using Redhat, and it does not support Arabic.
For example, there is no locale for arabic in RH 7.3
or any other version I tried before.
The same goes fro RH RPMS for KDE etc.
I always have to manually download locale files or
i18n files, generally from Suse, and install them so they can
Anyway, just a thought
