Reading is not but writing isn't. That means rename a file in Arabic is not possible because the Linux kernel is not Arabic supported and some of the flash drive Arabic contents is shown as question marks, but you can write Arabic in Abiword and your web browser.
Arabic language is not fully supported in puppy desktop interface still some things are shown in Arabic!.

]عىىغ : شبفثق شييهىل شقش ﻻهؤ فخ Very Happy
Menu>Setup>Setup Wizards>Mouse/Keyboard Wizard>Advanced Xorg Keyboard Configuration .

Entries in keyboard section of Xorg.conf :
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
Option "XkbLayout" "us,ara,de" #xkeymap0
Option "XkbOptions" "lv3:ralt_switch,grp:rwin_toggle"

To autoload the keyboard settings i have
Code:
setxkbmap -rules xorg -model pc102 -layout us,de -variant "" -option grp:rwin_toggle,lv3:ralt_switch

in /root/.xinitrc in case xwin rewrites the /etc/X11/xorg.conf .

Seems I have to upgrade console fonts though. No "ara" in /lib/consolefonts and /lib/keymaps for now .. (Macpup Foxy 3 (430)) .

@L18L
I know that puppy can show Arabic files names in the hard drive, but sometimes in a flash drive it came as question marks (??????? ??????).

I was talking about the language of the desktop, like the menu, desktop shortcuts (file, help, mount, install,.....etc) and some of puppy built-in apps that it comes with Arabic language. In short, a puppy that speaks Arabic.

اللغة العربية مدعومة دعما تاما
تستطيع تسمية الملفات وايقونات سطح المكتب بل حتى الترمنال تستطيع الكتابة فيه بالعربية لكن طبعا لا يوجد اوامر في الترمنال بغير الانجليزية.
في الرابط التالي تستطيع اضافة ايقونة تغيير اللغة وبعد تفعيل العربية من القائمة تستطيع الكتابة والقراءة بالعربية الجميلة
ولاضافة خطوط اخرى تستطيع اضافة اي خط من الوندوز او النت الى مجلد الخطوط في بوبيhttp://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=342308#342308.

Hmm........Not bad, a good idea actually.
So, do i have to be a pro in programming in order to do it?

No, just clicking some buttons and translating from English in a text editor (yudit can do right/to/left).
Learn more about momanager translation manager directly from the PuppyMaster:

Sorry, Lucid is not compatible to that relative new method which is

These are the official Wary, Racy , Precise and Slacko
Precise is the one with compatibility to ubuntu (like lucid but newer).
