# Then, open your favorite text editor. I prefer gedit (Applications*Accessories*gedit Text Editor)

# Click Keyboard Preferences (usually it is placed in top-right of desktop panel) and it will be switched from USA to Ara

# Type your word one by one based on Arabic keyboard layout. It will be connected automatically.

# Type Space key to separate one word to another.

It is easy, isn't it? Enjoy!
