http://unix.stackexchange.com – I've recently installed OpenSUSE 12.1, and I have a problem with KMail and Konqueror - they display Hebrew backwards, in LTR instead of RTL. In my previous OS, Ubuntu 11.10, RTL support worked out of the box for those applications. Setting the encoding manually does not work. I've also tried to install kde4-l10n-he, but it turned out to be just menu translations, and didn't solve the RTL problem. Now, the message titles and the composer in KMail, and the file names in Konqueror(when used as a file manager) have proper text direction, also, when I change Konqueror's web browser engine from We (HowTos)
