Description Adam Williamson 2019-12-14 17:33:13 UTC
The openQA Arabic install test fails on Fedora-Rawhide-20191213.n.0 because the 'Password:' prompt that shows after you select a user (translated to Arabic, obviously :>) is left-aligned, when it should be right-aligned as Arabic is an RTL language.

Most of the other elements on the screen seem to be properly RTL-aligned - this isn't a case of RTL alignment just not being respected at all. e.g. the power menu, language select and accessibility menu are at top-left, not top-right as they would be on an LTR language. The username and user icon are shown with the username on the left and the icon on the right, and aligned to the right of the password entry box. But this one element is aligned to the left. (Also, the text input cursor appears to be left-aligned, not right-aligned, though that may have been broken for longer in fact - looking at openQA needles, it seems like it was left-aligned for some time, then right-aligned at some point in June 2018, then back to left aligned in June 2019...)

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 32 development cycle.
Changing version to 32.
