>> It's strange:
>> I choose "hebrew-full" as input-method.
>> - After typing 'f' I get KAF
>> - then by typing d I get GIMMEL
>> - and after typing 'D' I get "the three point sign" (HEBREW POINT QUBUTS) 
>> not below the GIMMEL but the KAF!
>> - and If I then type anything else (like DALET) the three points disappear!
> This I don't see on my Windows machine. Hebrew is displayed correctly

>> I Linux I installed some additional packages two display arabic correctly. 
>> Maybe I have to install packages for windows - but wich?
