Issues displaying Hebrew conky Simple Info

Post by chamen on Thu Sep 22, 2016 5:14 am

Hebrew is a right to left language, meaning that the first letter on a line goes to the left and not the right as in English. As you can see here the letters are displayed in reverse order. That would be as if September was written as rebmetpeS. How can I correct that?

sorry for late reply, wasn't correctly notified by the forum bot Sad

This problem is caused by a bad font. Try changing your font to a better one by searching for a good Hebrew font for Ubuntu. If that's what you did, the font you got is not good.

I can't find the place where I can change the font. It is not in the setting as it is in Ubuntu.

for the conky, the only way to change it may by editing the ~/.conkyrc file. Not exactly sure.

First things first you need to have the Hebrew locale libraries installed to get them to display correctly. After that it is a conky issue. I am looking into how to show the font properly. When I do I'll post a screenshot. I get the same result the font is in reverse order. The OS displays it correctly in the calendar but not so in conky!

Thank you for your help. I was testing this distro and have since decided to move on to Kubuntu.
