Description Diego Iastrubni 2008-01-25 17:43:37 UTC
Version:            (using Devel)
Installed from:    Compiled sources

When running konsole on RTL desktops, the console display text layout direction is set to RTL which causes the console text to be rendered in RTL mode, and not LTR as the applications expect. I am attaching a screen shot which demostrates the problem.

(BTW, mc works pretty good, and it's really funny to look at, I strongly suggest running it under a Konsole in RTL mode).

You can reproduce the problem by running "konsole --reverse".
