Angry arabic fonts

Hi, every body
I ve just installed debian, ( in fact knoppix is more easy, I complete it with apt-cdrom).

When I use mozilla and connect to an arabic site , like, I get the correct fonts, I mean the arabic fonts are correctly displayed.
But If I want to write a text in xterm , using the ar keyboard nothing good is displaying. I tried to install the openoffice 1.1 with the arabic , the fonts displayed in the interface installater are a list rectangles...
Someone has an idea

thank you very much.

If you still have the problem, then repost at or Linux-Software. I know that mozilla uses its own font system, so you're probably just missing a general locale package. This forum doesn't exactly get huge amounts of activity, as you can tell :-) . Otherwise, this post is just to get this thread off the 0 replies list.
