Description Muhammad Tailounie 2016-04-06 20:08:40 CEST
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):

How reproducible:
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 ?
Comment 2 Muhammad Tailounie 2016-04-15 20:32:55 CEST
I could provide video, because those dialogues disappear when clicking away from them!

The video was about 3MB so I couldn't upload. I'll try again later.
Comment 6 Nicolas Lécureuil 2016-05-05 11:28:36 CEST
please report this bug upstream.
Comment 7 Nicolas Lécureuil 2016-12-28 01:46:36 CET
is this bug still valid on current cauldron ?
Comment 8 Muhammad Tailounie 2016-12-30 19:56:28 CET
Sorry to answer so late. It seems that I am the only one testing Arabic :)

Last night I did a network install of Plasma MGA 6 STA 2 64-bit. This bug is still there. Moreover, the desktop icons with Arabic names are split on two rows- I mean the same word is split on two rows..this should not occur because it is wrong in Arabic.

Some Menus show better, though, but the bug is still open.. :(
Comment 9 Nicolas Lécureuil 2017-03-14 16:46:24 CET
is this bug still valid under Plasma 5.8.6 ?
Comment 10 Muhammad Tailounie 2017-03-14 18:35:43 CET
Unfortunately; it is still there. Personally; I wouldn't be comfortable using the system that way. :(
Comment 11 Nicolas Lécureuil 2017-04-22 18:41:47 CEST
can you please report this upstream ?
