! Package inputenc Error: Unicode char ێ (U+6CE) (inputenc) not set up for use with LaTeX. Any help?

• (don't use etex package on recent latex releases) you can use \DeclareUnicodeCharacter{06CE}{????} where ???? is whatever you need it to be, I don't know if the character is in the fonts you are using, sorry I can not read Arabic. – David Carlisle Mar 13 '16 at 10:09
• Not me either, I want to write welcome in different languages and got stuck :( – Bernhard Kleine Mar 13 '16 at 10:21
