÷ I take this opportunity to inform that here in
Algeria we have done our 4th school  for Linux and
free software,. The last one was at Setif 300 km, Est
Algiers, from 21st to 24 Dec at Setif University.
We have decided to create our Linux group in the next 
few weeks. in challah.
I presented the arabix for some very interested people
( the most are prof at university).

So I would like to find , the lyx program with arabic
support. I know the dispalying arabic in Lyx is not
the same as in openoffice. perhaps someone  can find a
to include it automatically.
Lyx is very important for arab scientists.

best regards
