FriBidi is a library that should be used by other packages in
compile times. Please try reading about Arabic OpenOffice by
searching in Google or in ArabEyes forums. FriBidi is not a
server so running fribidi does nothing for other applications.
Also, fribidi is a bidi library, and does nothing for joining.
