[Linux Ubuntu] How to Put Harakat or Vowel Marks in Arabic Keyboard Layout

Now, you are able to enable Arabic keyboard layout and write them in Linux Ubuntu. What about adding harakat or vowel marks in Arabic? Follow these steps:

# Write the word first. For example, word "Al 'Ilmu"


# We should put fatha in character " ا ". To do this, put cursor behind character " ا ".

# In the Arabic keyboard layout, fatha is placed in character Shift + Q. So, press Shift + َQ and you will get: " اَ "

# Now put the cursor behind character " ل " and add sukun mark by pressing Shift + X. You will get: اَلعلم

# Continue these steps until all of word is fulfilled with appropriate harakat (اَلْعِلْمُ). Enjoy!
