Hi Holger,

> However, I am unable to get correct PDFs built so far.

Could you instead of sending a link to the refcard Debian packaging,
which few here will understand (and even I had to sit on top of the
rules file for quite some time) send a generated file for the languages
you need, best stripped down to a very short minimal example, and then
we can look into it what would be the best way to support it.

A short google for "xelatex hebrew" brought up lots of good advice, here
is one

For arabic one could look at the great example in overleaf
or directly the files under
  /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/doc/xelatex/arabxetex (on Debian)
might help.

Hope that helps for now
