I need to install or downloads Arabic language into my computer languages so I can type using Arabic keyboard thank you very much sam


Setting Up Arabic in Windows XP

Adding the Language to Windows

The following instructions will help you to set up your keyboard layout for Arabic that matches the DataCal Keyboard Labels.

Step 1. Install Supplemental Language Support
The Arabic language requires that you install Supplemental Language Support before you can set it up in Windows.
  1. Select the Start button in the lower left corner of the Desktop.
  2. Select the Control Panel (or, if you are using the Windows Classic Setting, select Settings > Control Panel).
  3. In the Control Panel, double-click the Regional and Language Options item.
  4. In the Regional and Languages dialog box, click on the Languages tab. In the Supplemental language support section, click on the Install files for complex script and right-to-left languages (including Thai) option (see Figure below).
  5. Click on the Apply button in the lower right corner of the dialog box and then click on the OK button. You may be prompted to insert your Windows install CD into the CD drive.

Step 2. Add Language to Windows

4. The Keyboard Layout/IME should default to the Arabic keyboard layout. If it does not, click on the arrow to the right of the selector in the Keyboard layout/IME selector and scroll to the Arabic keyboard layout. Note that there often are different keyboard layouts for a language. You should select the language and keyboard layout that matches the DataCal Keytop Label.

5. After you select the language and keyboard layout, click on the OK button to close the Add input language dialog box.

6. When you return to the Text services and input languages dialog box, you will see the new input language and keyboard layout included in the Installed Services box.

7. Click on the Apply button to apply the changes to the new layout. Note that each language features a small blue box in the Installed services section with 2 letters that indicates the language. English is designated as EN.

  1. If you do not wish to add any additional languages or layouts, you can click on OK to close the Text services and input languages dialog box. When you return to the Windows Desktop, you can see the language bar in the lower right corner of the Desktop.
  2. To change the language and keyboard layout, click on the two-letter language selector box with the left mouse button to open the language selector menu.
  3. Click on the language that you wish to use in the language selector pop up menu.
The language you select will remain in effect in active Windows application until you select a different language. For example, if you select the Arabic language and keyboard layout in Microsoft Excel and English in Microsoft Word, each application will use that keyboard layout until you exit the application or you select a different language.

Default Keyboard Layout

If you wish to make a particular keyboard layout the default Windows layout (i.e., to be used in all Windows applications), open the Text services and input languages dialog box.
Select the desired keyboard layout to be the default in the Default input language section of the dialog box.

I hope it helps.

I am having trouble to set an e-mail becouse the key @ not popping up but the 2 commas do. can you help me? I am using other computer to ask this question.


Your keyboard is most likely set to the wrong layout, as in it's set as US for a UK keyboard, or vice versa. These keyboard layouts have those two keys the other way around.
To fix, go to Control Panel and find the 'Region and Language' settings (assuming Windows Vista or Windows 7). Click the 'Keyboards and Languages' tab and click the 'Change Keyboards' button.
Click on the 'Add' button on the right and find "English (United Kingdom/States) depending on which layout you have (UK layout has the 'two commas' above the 2) Click the + symbol next to the layout you want and then again next to 'Keyboard'. Click the check box next to the keyboard layout you have (click 'Preview' to check) and then click OK. From the dropdown list in the dialogue, you should now be able to select the correct keyboard layout. Select it and OK out both dialogue boxes.
You should now be typing with the correct keyboard layout.

wrong keyboard


I suggest this, of course if you'd like: you change the keyboard layout to English (if you want to use English), can be UK or US.
Then you change what is written in the keyboard buttons with the correct one ("English" letters).
I know much in Windows, in Linux frankly speaking I don't know much (Linux has too many types). I got from this site:
http://wiki.eeeuser.com/howto:change_keyboard_layout_in_advanced_mode
how to change the keyboard layout:
In Advanced Mode the default keyboard layout is set to the US. These instructions inform KDE to use a different layout; for example the UK.
  • Launch / Control Centre / Control Centre, and select Peripheral Devices / Keyboard Layout
  • Under Available layouts select your country then click Add ».
  • Change layout variant to eeepc.
  • Click Apply.
  • Under Active layouts select U.S. English then click Remove.
  • Click Apply.
You can find the international keyboard layout here (example for English US):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keyboard_layout#US

If your computer already set for English keyboard layout, if you push your button, it should follow that international keyboard layout. (can be with some small modification). You can just try out for each button.
