After installing the arabic language pack from the Syetem > Administrator > language support

Goto Syetem > Preferences > keyboard

Goto layout tab

click "add"

add the arabic

a new indicator will appear indicating your current input language "Fra" or "Eng" "Ara" (just like in windows)

click on it and enjoy arabic input
