Well, no, not really.

Pango and GEdit have supported the Arabic script since 
GNOME-2.0. There may be a few places where Farsi in particular
doesn't work as well as it should (issues with ZWZ and ZWNJ)
but it will be basically usable.

The Nashtaliq styles used frequently for Farsi (and even
more frequently for Urdu) aren't supported, however.

The problem being run into here are almost certainly problems
with the wrong fonts being found.
