How to add language and how to write arabic in ubuntu?


Hello Cherieveril,

Ubuntu supports many languages for typing, By adding Keyboard Indicator is a simple method to type in Arabic, using this tool you can easily switch to languages of your choice. 

If you don't have the Keyboard Indicator then just right click on any of your panel – click on add to panel – you will find Keyboard Indicator in the utilities group, select it then click on add.

Now add languages to the keyboard indicator by following these steps below.

Right click on Keyboard indicator – Click on Keyboard preferences – Click on Layouts tab-Add Arabic language – Close when you are done.

Now time to use by following these instructions below.

Run your editor-Start typing-you see language has changed into Arabic.

If you are new to Ubuntu and you want to change the language, click the “Activities” button to display the windows and applications in the overview. You can also move your mouse to the top left corner of the screen. After this, type the following:

region & language

Next, click “Region & Language” to open the panel then select “Language”. After this, select your preferred region and or language. If your region and language are not listed, click the three dots at the bottom of the list to select from all available regions and languages. When you are finished, click “Done” to save the new settings.

When you are prompted with “Your session needs to be restarted for changes to take effect”, click “Restart Now” to restart the system or click the “X” button to restart later. To know more about the Activities overview, go to Visual overview of GNOME.
