      OK. I already have QT 2.3.1 and still have ????? when I try to type
      Hebrew. I changed to ISO-8859-8, through KDE's *Control
      Center*>Personalization>Country & Language, but it messed up the fonts and
      when I logged out and then back in again I kept getting the KDE crash
      window with the following:

      (no debugging symbols found)...[New Thread 1024 (LWP 2241)]
      0x40e3a4f9 in wait4 () from /lib/libc.so.6
      #0 0x40e3a4f9 in wait4 () from /lib/libc.so.6
      #1 0x40eb8098 in __check_rhosts_file () from /lib/libc.so.6
      #2 0x405f3c6e in KCrash::defaultCrashHandler () from
      /usr/lib/libkdecore.so.3#3 0x40d4b847 in _IO_2_1_stderr_ () from
      /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3

      I also couldn't get back into *Control Center*>Personalization>Country &
      Language as it crashed every time that I clicked on the *Country &
      Language* section. I eventually edited my
      /home/nigel/.kde/share/config/kdeglobals file and managed to get it back
      to (nearly) the way it was - the fonts on the KDE Panel are, I think, AD
      Mono, and horrible! I have yet to figure out how to change them :-(

      Anyway, if someone could post a copy of (the relevant part of)
      .kde/share/config/kdeglobals file it would help me to get Hebrew working
      propely. Here is mine:

      [Locale]
      Charset=iso8859-1
      Country=il
      Language=C

      [PanelIcons]
      Size=16

      [Paths]
      Trash=/home/nigel/Desktop/Trash/

      [WM]
      activeFont=helvetica,12,5,0,75,0
      activeFontCharset=default

      I did try Language=he but it didn't seem to change anything.

      Nigel.
