I use my Ubuntu system in the French language while I type with an English keyboard layout. To my surprise, my login screen (dates and day etc) contains text which looks like Arabic (it might be Persian too, but I am not sure).

I searched for Arabic installation in the Synaptic package list, but no there was no such package! How did Arabic happen to the French system?
