comment How can I disable gedit's behaviour of right-aligning Arabic text?
The screenshots don't show when the text gets right-aligned. For example, gEdit right aligns the line when it thinks the line is only Arabic. It also doesn't show when the editor decides to set the direction to left-to-right, this is most obvious when a sentence ends in a full stop: does the full stop show on the right or the left (regardless of how the text is aligned)? Thanks though!

comment External USB hard drives - what speeds should be expected?
You are using the units MBps and Mbps, I'm not sure if you realise that a lower-case b indicates a bit, which is 8 times smaller than a byte indicated by an uppercase B.

comment External USB hard drives - what speeds should be expected?
You are using the unit mb/s with a lowercase b, which is 1 million bits per second, which is equal to 125000 bytes per second. I think you meant to use MB/s or MiB/s.

comment External USB hard drives - what speeds should be expected?
Did you mean to type 20MBp/s, with a capital "B" (byte) instead of a lowercase "b" (bit)? 20 Mbp/s is 20000000 bits per second, which is 2500000 bytes per second (2.5MB/s or 2.38MiB/s).

comment How to enable Arabic support in GNOME terminal?
I installed it and it doesn't seem to work, the Arabic characters are just boxes. Maybe it's using the wrong font?

comment How can I install Ubuntu encrypted with LUKS with dual-boot?
Thanks @Tom for the edit. Am I correct in assuming that if you don't care about the confidentiality of the previous data on the hard disk, for example, if it's a brand new hard disk, you can skip that step? All new data is still going to get encrypted and the unfilled gaps don't matter, right?
