Arabic Bible

I installed the Arabic Bible in Gnomesword, unfortunately the characters are not binding properly to words, but are all shown individually . I guess there must bee some Arabic internationalistaion module for Gnome itself necesary. Anyone has a clue ?

Thanks !

Re: Arabic Bible

Not sure why this could be, but I know there have been some recent right-to-left fixes in CVS.

The best thing might be to post to the gnomesword mailing lists (users or developers) and post a bug report to our project page with a more detailed description.

Re: Arabic Bible

Does the module work correctly with another frontend?

Re: Arabic Bible

yes, no problem under Bibletime.

Arabic letters have usually between three and four forms, which are used depending on the position of teh letter within the word, a bit like capital and small letters in latin script. Under gnomesword I have only solitary letters ("capitals")

The sasme module looks fine under Bibletime

Re: Arabic Bible

GnomeSword may need to enable the UTF8arShaping filter, which requires ICU, in order to render properly shaped Arabic (and I'm not even certain that the shaping filter actually works, since I don't recall whether we use it for BibleCS). BibleTime probably doesn't need this since I'm sure KDE manages shaping itself.
