#630 right to left language keyboard issue

libfm (302)

If i install lubuntu 12.04 with Hebrew language GUI and use the file manager , the keyboard left and right keys are mixed up. i.e. opposite.
this does not happen in other applications, such as libreoffice.
i dont know if u tested this on the newer libfm , but i hope u do.

best regards ,and thank you for you efforts ,
Hebrew user.

    Since I don't know any of languages with right-to-left writing I never tested it. I would like if you could list all the places where it is reversed. Thank you very much.

    here are some more test i made.

    browsing the top menu is fine , ie File ,Edit View ,Tools etc , left and right are as they should be.
    also when renaming files , they keys are fine in the text box.
    there is however some odd behavior of the Next and Back folder icons which might be related , these green buttons stop working after few times when been pressed.
    as if 'they forget' the record of back and next folder that was chosen before
    the keys mix up is in the content window itself , the files and folders.
    hope that helps nero things down a bit

    version of pcmanfm 0.9.10

    As for Next/Back buttons you should really use some stable version of libfm+pcmanfm, that 0.9.10 is too much outdated.
    And thank you very much for testing. I'll check the behavior of R-to-L that you've experienced. I hope to fix it before 1.0.2 is released.

    We hope this issue is completely fixed in the Git repository recently.
    Check it out when it's possible for you and if the bug still exists then reopen the report, please.
    Thank you very much.
