No, Akka doesn't come up with its own commands. When you type 'ls' at your
prompt, and you have Arabic filenames, Akka will display them properly for
you. When you pop-up lynx or vim and start typing, you Akka sits in the
middle, ensuring that you see Arabic. In other words, Akka sits there between
you and the console (whatever program you are running), and allows it to
display Arabic text. The keymaps allow you to input Arabic text, which Akka
intercepts then displays.

I need more information to be able to determine the problem. Which version of
Akka and FriBiDi? What is the error message? How are you trying to compile it?

No problem. Glad to help. Next time though, please direct such generic
questions to the 'general' list.
