I have an idea about the origin of this bug, it may be caused by AUTO
direction in QPainter Object...
I mean in QT you can choose the text direction in QPainter Objects with
QPainter::drawText(). There are 3 possibilities:
Check http://doc.trolltech.com/3.1/qpainter.html#drawText and
I presume that KDE programs use AUTO direction which is the default and thus
when using arabic digits with arabic text the direction is supposed to be
LTR !!! I think that the text direction should be also choosable by the
I even think that KDE programs use QWidget::drawText() which is simpler than
QPainter.drawText() and it won't be then possible to change text direction
unless a QPainter is used... Check
http://doc.trolltech.com/3.1/qwidget.html#drawText . Trolltech's advice is
to use QPainter to have more flexibility.
Well all this is only wild imaginings and I didn't look in the code and I
don't know if I will have the time to.
I Maalam I plan to use RTL by default so now I'm not sad anymore ;) By the
way, Maalam porting to QT seem to be easier than I thought ! I hope I will
have something worth committing by next week or in 2 weeks maximum inch
