Binary package hint: kdegraphics

hey all,

using Gnome & Ubuntu 9.10, i really prefer KDE's Okular above all PDF
readers. the only issue which really disturbs me is the word search
(that i found to be the best among ALL the pdf readers in Linux, IMO):
it works fine, but when searching in a RTL language (such as Hebrew) you
most write the word in the opposite letter direction so that your word
will be found..

for exapmle, if i want to look for the word 'lesson', that in Hebrew is שיעור - i'll need to write it the other way around, like this: רועיש
now i know Hebrew isn't your strong side :P so in English, 'lesson' should look like this: 'nossel'
