hey guys,

I am working on an Arabic translation. I followed the instructions i had ( i just changed the German DB name in the language table to Arabic) then i used the HaDesigner program to change the former German text to arabian word.

now when i start Linuxmce, the eateries i changed are all ?????? question marks. i bet this is a character set problem.
i also installed the kde Arabic packages, no dice.

what do you guys suggest i do? i am doing this for my job, and i would appreciate a fast response.
