I bought acer ferrari 200 from dubai. I have changed the environment language to uk english. Now I am trying to install gimp2.6 software. It installs ok but unfortunately the text is arabic. How do I...

Hi les liyane...
You can do the change a couple of ways...
Download and install the arabic language program pack made by Microsoft.

But the easy way is to click on the page and have it translated for you
Left click on the page...go down to "Translate with Live Search" and it will translate the page for you.

If salary offer for an interior designer in dubai is 2,500 uad plus 1,500 as total monthly allowance, is it okey to sign a work contract?

Assuming that is austral Ian dollars, if you can live off of 4000/month (48k/year). Assuming you cover your own moving and living expenses, it is not much by Dubai standards. It really depends how long your contract will be, number of trips home and how much stuff you will be taking with you. At 4000/mo, you will be living like a hobbit in a small flat. Don't take much with you, you can't spare the space. I would do it for the experience and thrill if it is 2 or 3 months and no kids.

I have used it only 6 month after purchasing,but it's battery gives only 15 minutes backup even if i don't do any was bought in Dubai in 1st October 2010

Chances are that the battery can be bad. You can call into the manufacturer and have them replace the battery. It should fall into the 1-yr battery warranty that 99.9% of manufacturers have. No battery should go out that fast. I say that it was faulty.

Thanks. Please Rate.

I want to change arabic language in my i m mate jama201

Buddy, I guess our problem is you bought a phone pre-installed with arabic software. And whenever you type an sms, it only types arabic.

Do this:
Reset you phone from Settings > Master Clear > type 1234 and click on the button.

Your phone will reinstall all software. you will be asked to accept an End user license agreement for Informobility software. This is the Arabic software. Simply reject it. "Do not accpet the installation". It will show you like it is still installing prayer times etc. but it wont.

Done. You have a complete english phone in your hands.
