Description Ossama Khayat 2003-02-23 06:00:48 UTC
Description of problem: Uptill now, all of RedHat Linux releases didn't have the Arabic-i18n for KDE nor for GNOME. All files needed are included but they are just not compiled like the others. It would be great if you can: 1. Add support for KDE/GNOME Arabic Interface 2. Add Arabic fonts (GPLed) which are available on the net I will attach screen shots of KDE from RedHat 7.3, which I created from the KDE-i18n-xxx.src.rpm file available on the sources CD. The url for the fonts is: http://www.arabeyes.org/download/3rd/haydar_fonts.tar.bz2 http://www.arabeyes.org/download/3rd/kacst_fonts.tar.bz2 Both of these font sets will have fonts suitable for graphical interfaces as well as text based ones.

Also, the arabic fonts issue was solved already, I can't find the bug report number.
Comment 5 Ossama Khayat 2003-02-23 11:00:34 UTC
Well, I re-checked RedHat 8. By specifying your language ar Arabic (Egypt) for example, and using GNOME, you'll see that the menues are still displayed from left to right and English. Some names are in Arabic and if you notice in the screen shot the direction of the window is RTL, though Arabic is broken. The other bug number is 79394 and it's taking about adding Arabic support to Anaconda as well as adding Arabic fonts only. Finally, I tried contacting http://i18n.redhat.com/ via the website, for helping in translating Redhat components, for the second time yesterday, but still no answer!

Comment 7 Mohamed Eldesoky 2003-02-23 11:15:58 UTC
The same here, i18n at redhat is not responsive at all. I am contacting them for more than 2 months. Should we file a bug report regarding that ?
Comment 8 Ossama Khayat 2003-03-03 05:29:02 UTC
Seems like there's still no answer from i18n at RedHat. Some at the mailing list suggested that we just get the .po files and translate them, then find someone who has a CVS account to upload them. Should we do this or just file a bugzilla about i18n?
Comment 9 Bill Nottingham 2003-03-03 21:03:29 UTC
We're working on solving the i18n issue internally. As mentioned, other translators only have commit access to their languages.
Comment 10 Ngo Than 2003-05-09 09:34:29 UTC
kde-i18n-3.1.1-1 now includes Arabic i18n.
