KeyBoard Layout
HI Every Body , I Want A Little Help Here .
My Default Keyboard layout in Opensuse 10.2 is English and i want to add support for Arabic (my native language ) .
i want it to be like my windows setup if possible :

** Left CTR+SHIFT --> Left To Right Direction .
** Left ALT+SHIFT --> English Language
** Right CTRL+SHIFT --> Right To Left Direction .
** Right ALT+SHIFT --> Arabic Language .

Is it Possible ? And if So , is there any thing do the job of windows language bar ? as an indicator of the current active language ?

thank you in advance . :)

If you are using the KDE desktop it's in your control centre (kcontrol) under regional & accessibilty. I don't know where it is under Gnome.

You must have some kind of control centre where you can set stuff like screensavers, background wallpapers, etc. Have a look for System > Preferences > Keyboard.

I've tried it and it works. I added the arabic keyboard language, then selected the 'show country flag' option. This is what happens when I left click the flag and change to arabic. /خخن شة صقهفهىل هى \قشلاهؤ
