Thank you for your reply!!
I do have another question/problem in the same vein:
I have written an application that must be able to display English, Arabic,
and Chinese(simplified or traditional). I am able to see Arabic (the
current test language) on my system (Suse 9.3 + Qt 4.3.0), but the end user
can only see the non-Arabic characters (quotes, comma, etc.) on Redhat 3 +
Qt 4.3.0. I was able to look at his fonts using QFontDatabase and found
that he has four font families (MiscFixed, Monospace, Sans Serif, and
Serif) with the Arabic writing system(among others). I also have these
fonts/systems and when I explictly set the fontfamily, my display changes
(but still works), but his still does not work. I am wondering if anyone
has any ideas about what is going on. I really appreciate your help!
Thank you very much!!
