I think your problem with KDE could be solved easily by disabling
all of the Keyboard Layout settings in its control center, so it would
not override X settings.

I'll try these and get back with you.....
Yes, I also go after the xorg.conf...
In FC4, KDE although I had made the changes
in my xorg.conf, it would require two actions to
get the Farsi keyboard layout, one is to click on
the tray icon (informing kde window manager)
and then the alt-shift.

Ok...so I downloaded
You may need to download the file again. (I've downloaded it last year
and it works)
and my unzip(1) program said
....funny thing....the faulty operations I described can
be fixed by pressing
This is the Arabic "ye" which you see using shift-d. I don't know about
the Roya font you have, but I have one without any problem with Persain
shift-d , that is regular 'd' generates the bad "ye" and 'shift-d'
Anyway, your problem may be fixed by removing that unusable ugly fonts
in /usr/share/fonts/bitmap-fonts: 9x15.pcf, 9x15b.pcf and another one
which I think it's name was 10x*.pcf (I don't remember the * part, but
it looks like that there is only one font starting with 10x). (Removing
these files is the first thing I do after installing a Fedora version
on a system).
Finally, if you want more fonts than farsiweb fonts; I recommend using
free B* fonts such as B Roya.
I have done this before on FC2 and FC4 in KDE....this is
my new FC4 box
I don't know about your problem, but I always prefer to
configuration file for Persian typing support. With this, you don't
need to set it up for each user and for each desktop system. It works
everywhere! It is very easy too: open the X config file
(/etc/X11/xorg.conf in Fedora) as root and find this line:
which I had to switch to gnome because the alt-shift keyboard switching
working on KDE...anyway, I should'nt polute the problem...
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
Then, replace this line with these lines:
Option "XkbLayout" "us,ir"
Save this file and restart the X window system. After this, you should
be able to switch between Persian and English with Alt+Shift, or
switching temporary by holding Win key (only left one in FC4); and the
scroll lock LED will be on when you can type in Persian.

Basically, you don't have good fonts, and that's the default on
FC4 unfortunately :(. You need to install the FarsiWeb fonts
package (available from
http://farsiweb.info/) to start with.
There is a fontconfig configuration file like this one:
This will be included in fontconfig-2.4 release coming soon.
