I'm a newbie and I have a question about installing an
Open Office language pack.
I need to be able to produce documents in Arabic. I
have already configured my keyboard successfully, but
if I type in Arabic in Open Office 2.0, it still
writes from left to right. (Arabic goes from right to
left.) I can right flush everything but that's awkward
and I don't have any Arabic font options either. I can
open read Arabic language documents with no problem.
I have Librix 2.86 and I'm using KDE 3.5.5. Open
Office 2.0 was pre-installed on my computer.
I'm trying to install the Open Office Arabic language
package and I haven't succeeded.
I downloaded the package
to my desktop.
In the Konsole, I typed:
It told me to try "install --help" and so I did.
I guess I'm supposed to type something else to tell it
where to go before I type ENTER. I've tried /usr/lib/
and a few other things without success. I've been
messing around with it for awhile now and it's time to
decide that I'm stuck and need help.
My questions are:
1. Have I selected the correct package to solve my
2. What is the exact syntax of the command that I need
to type in order to install the package?
3. Which directory does it go into?
Thanks for your help and sorry... yes, I feel stupid
