Sorry I did not say that; I just said when I write in libreoffice, I can
print well.

When I write Arabic in emacs, the buffer looks great. However, when I
spool to ps and open this ps using Ghostscript the letters are
reversed. Another clue is this: when I run ps2pdf to the ps file it
fails converting.
