"Ubuntu 18" does not exist. There are two different releases - Ubuntu 18.04 from April 2018 and Ubuntu 18.20 from October 2018. Ubuntu 18.10 is not supported anymore, so I assume that you are talking about Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (long time support)

thawab version 4 is not available for Ubuntu 18.04, but only for newer Ubuntu releases (e.g. 19.10).

Perhaps there is a PPA. Obviously this comes with the caveats of a PPA

From the control file for thawab 4.1-1:

Package: thawab
Description: Arabic/Islamic encyclopedia system
 Thwab is an Islamic literature library which features:

My assumption is that "Thwab" is a typo error.

When checking the prerequisites, it seems that all dependencies for thawab 4.1-1 (for disco) can be fulfilled on Ubuntu bionic.
I assume that the following will work on Ubuntu 18.04:
manually install it with "sudo dpkg -i thawab_4.1-1_all.deb"
install missing dependencies (if required) with "sudo apt install -f"

 4.1-1 on Ubuntu 18.04 installs and imports the .bok books into the program well.
But when i wanted to do a search, and tried, instead of typing directly in Arabic, to copy-paste the word I needed from my browser (with this useful tool called yamli) the program simply froze rather than pasting...
Then when trying a search, my first option gave 0 results (which I doubt is exact) and after that it was impossible to make a new search. I would type the new query and press return but nothing would happen.

Can you help with this problem?
