How cai I add arabic language to the EnOS?

salam for all
i’m new user first time to try EnOS
installed it fine in English
but i can’t add Arabic language

No expertise here, but Arch (which EndeavourOS is based on) should be able to handle it. The Archwiki has instructions that will work here too…

Welcome to the forum! :smile:

In addition, if you are talking about the Welcome app, we don’t have a translation for it yet. Volunteers are much appreciated! :wink:

welcome here and the needed step to have a language added to the system is to uncomment it in:
sudo nano /etc/locale.gen
and generate the locales to add the new language:
sudo locale-gen
After this it should be available from Desktop Environment settings.

To set locale systemwide you can use:
sudo localectl set-locale LANG=ar_AE.UTF-8

per example… looks like there are a lot variants :wink:

thanx my friend
i did it and it turned the system menues to the Arabic language
but why i wanted really was the Arabic layout to be able to write in arabic beside Engliash

You will find this setting in the Keyboard Layouts setting, in whatever DE you use (KDE, Gnome etc.).
You can also do it with a command, but if your DE has this in GUI, it’s more practical.
Ask again if you can’t find it.
