No problem, Thanks too, but katoob is not really driven by me only Thanks to all who helped even with a small idea, "i didn't say names not to forget anyone" > Since my program is "totally" written with xlib, here is my question: where > do I start in order to make my program "speaks" arabic.

I think you don't need pango, Perhaps what you need is fribidi for conversion between encoding and/or manipulating the bidi control codes pango is mainly for rendering, which i suppose can be handled by Xlib ? I think that Xlib can handle the display of UTF-8 text "Xutf8DrawString for example" But i'm not so sure about what you want exactly -- ---------------- -- Katoob Main Developer "http://www.arabeyes.org/project.php?proj=Katoob" Linux registered user # 224950 ICQ # 58475622 With Great Power, Comes Great Responsibilities.
