Well ... I've never used a hebrew setup, but I'd have
a play with the locale settings, en_US is almost certainly
not going to be able to accommodate what you want, try
he_IL or iw_IL (not that I know what either of them do
or look like, mind you ... ).


Cheers,
Tink

Assuming you're using bash - edit

/etc/profile.d/lang.sh

re

i really don't know what to change in their can you help me with that please ?
i write in konsole this
"pico /etc/profile.d/lang.sh"
and i got all this text

Code:
#!/bin/sh
# Set the system locale.  (no, we don't have a menu for this ;-)
# For a list of locales which are supported by this machine, type:
#   locale -a

# en_US is the Slackware default locale:
export LANG=en_US

# 'C' is the old Slackware (and UNIX) default, which is 127-bit
# ASCII with a charmap setting of ANSI_X3.4-1968.  These days,
# it's better to use en_US or another modern $LANG setting to
# support extended character sets.
#export LANG=C

# There is also support for UTF-8 locales, but be aware that
# some programs are not yet able to handle UTF-8 and will fail to
# run properly.  In those cases, you can set LANG=C before
# starting them.  Still, I'd avoid UTF unless you actually need it.
#export LANG=en_US.UTF-8

# Another option for en_US:
#export LANG=en_US.ISO8859-1

# One side effect of the newer locales is that the sort order
# is no longer according to ASCII values, so the sort order will
# change in many places.  Since this isn't usually expected and
# can break scripts, we'll stick with traditional ASCII sorting.
# If you'd prefer the sort algorithm that goes with your $LANG
# setting, comment this out.
export LC_COLLATE=C

# End of /etc/profile.d/lang.sh
can you help me and tell me what i need to change please ?

hope you can
Roy

Good grief mate, everything but two lines are
comments.

I'm sure you can figure that out yourself.


Shalom,

Well ... that file is only being used/sourced when
you start a new (login) shell. Close the terminal you're
operating on, open a new one...

If all your xterminals are just sub-shells restart your
X-session.
