Reinstall Kotoeri Japanese input on OSX
I used the excellent "Monolingual" on OSX to delete unnecessary languages from my iMac. I could have sworn I did not delete the Japanese input system, Kotoeri. But turns out I had.
To reinstall it, I visited the usual forums and searched Google. No solution. No downloadable file.
Well, the solution is simple.
- Insert DVD 1 of your original Mac OSX software.
- Click into the folder "Optional Install".
- Click on "
- Expand the menu item "Language Translations".
- Choose "Japanese".
That's it. It should install the input menu in about 2 minutes. When you're done, eject the DVD and click on the "International" option in your System Preferences.
If the option does not show as English (romaji) "Kotoeri", it should show up as original Japanese as in the screenshot below:
