How can allow the terminal on Linux to write Arabic without reversing its words?
For example, when I write "زمالك" it is written from left to right. How can I fix this?
Install the following packages:
sudo apt-get install libfribidi0 libfribidi-dev
Download & install bicon.
/usr/share/applications/gnome-terminal.desktop in any editor you like:
gksudo gedit /usr/share/applications/gnome-terminal.desktop
Add the following lines to the end of the file:
If you have a terminal icon on your desktop, remove it and make a new one.
GNOME Terminal version 3.34 supports right to left scripts such as Arabic, and so do other VTE-based emulators (e.g. Tilix, Terminator, Xfce Terminal, Guake...) if using VTE version 0.58.
