howto: arabic in the terminal

i use kde and i wanted to read some arabic file names.fedora has for sometime came with one package per language. this means arabic is installed by default, so we wont need to install any extra fonts.

kde also supports bidirectional languages, so that means we can use the default terminal called konsole. i hear too that gnome terminal does too but thats outside the scope of this article :D.

to cut a long story short

open up konsole/settings/configure current profile/advanced/enable bi-directional text rendering
