Description of problem:
Many dialogue boxes and windows do not show correctly in an Arabic installation of Mageia. It can be very serious at times when you cannot click on an option because it ovelaps other components or it is out of visibility sometimes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Try using pop-up menus or some application in plasma. Open up preferences windows..etc.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Mageia 6 Plasma in Arabic
2. Use it :)
can you provide a screenshot please ?
I could provide video, because those dialogues disappear when clicking away from them!
