View Full Version : [ubuntu] Writing R2L text

May 31st, 2010, 03:29 PM
Hi all,

I'm, well, a Linux newbie...

I installed the latest Ubuntu a few weeks ago, and have been using it quite easily since. However, there's one problem I haven't figured out yet: when writing text, how do I change the text direction from the default left-to-right to right-to-left? I'm not talking about just aligning it to the right, but making it really RTL, the way Hebrew and Arabic are written.

On Windows, this would be achieved by pressing the ctrl+shift on the right side of the keyboard. How can this be done on Ubuntu?
