Having trouble for quite a while at printing arabic text in invoices, tried the only solution available which is using this module https://bitbucket.org/openerparabia/openerp-arabic-reports/overview but in vain.

I don't care about RTL layout but I need arabic text to show correctly. Please need help, thanks!

Have you checked your font mappings under 'Settings > Configuration > General Settings > Report Font'?

Can't find this "Report Font" setting.....i have arabic letters appearing but from left to right which is not forming correct words
