localization question (hebrew)


Hi, I'm trying to set up a KDE-system in hebrew for a friend of mine. I've installed the relevant kde-i18n package and was happy to find him impressed with linux

I have one problem though; text that the user writes under any webbrowser still utilizes latin characters (e.g. the search bar on google echoes the given input with latin characters). How to change that? Thanks.

Moved: This thread is more suitable in Linux-Software and has been moved accordingly to help your thread/question get the exposure it deserves.

Which browsers have you tried? Konqueror should be fine, because it uses KDE settings. Firefox may require you to download Hebrew version or language pack.

Thanks for the reply and for moving my post.

Actually, I did try with konqueror just to be on the safe side - the menus and everything are in hebrew, but anything the user writes come out in latin letters.

Change keyboard layout in Control Center->Regional ... ->Keyboard layout. There's Hebrew (two versions in my KDE), I've just checked.

Homey: I just checked that; everything's set as it should be
Mara: Funny, I don't have hebrew listed there. Which version of KDE are you using? (I use 3.4).

EDIT: I was too fast there. It's apparently listed under Israeli and not Hebrew. It seems to work fine now. Thanks alot
