AFAIK, the system (console, man pages, and so) and KDE languages are
managed separately.

To set the system language, install the 'locales' package or (if it is
already installed) run a 'dpkg-reconfigure' on it, and select arabic.

For KDE, install the package 'kde-i18n-XX' (replace XX with arabic two
letter code, which I don't know :-) ). Then arabic will appear on the
Control Panel.
