Go to menu > system config > add/remove packages (or package manager, something like this) then scroll to the bottom of the window in the System section there is a language support section. Just add the language you want to add.

It's weird, in my FC4 installation it is in the System section, of add/remove programs. The other thing you can do is to look in the FC4 cd's for the language you need to add and then install it, or install it with yum.

I am presently using FC3 . I dont find any changes in FC3 and 4 . As far as I kow some app's have been added. If I would want to do it without a CD, is there any way?

Use Yum to install new software. To check the list of available packages type 'yum list available' , to install some package: 'yum install package_name' to update a package: 'yum update package_name'

I got the solution It does'nt need any installation. For the system-config-language, I mean if u want to switch tto arabic,
Type the command
setxkbmap -layout ar
this will change ur keymap to arabic. This is waht sys-config-lang does.
Now, to switch back to english, type
setxkbmap -layout us


This really works.

setxkbmap -layout ar
