Leopard 10.5.2 in Hebrew

not sure how interesting it is for this blog (more related to my hebrew blog), but i have recently found a package that updates Leopard 10.5.2 interface to fully hebrew interface (it looks strange but some people may like it).

the package works with other versions as well but it supports only half of the available strings (i tried it on a 10.5.3 hackintosh), i haven't found any problems, the only thing that bothered me is that there was no uninstall script, and since the package only adds a hebrew lproj folders to the appropriate applications, bundles, kext, and utils, then it is only a matter of removing them,

i created an uninstall script, backup and restore script for the hebrew lproj that exist before the package install, it will create a folder named "Backup" in the root drive.

before you install:
  1. backup using Time Machine
  2. create a user with english only interface
  3. download the file from this link

to install write these lines in the terminal:
  1. cd /path/to/downloaded/folder
  2. ./
  3. enter your password and press enter
  4. execute the install package: LeopardHebrew.10.5.2.pkg
  5. restart the computer (it may take a minute longer to load, just this time) and if you set your interface to hebrew, you will see hebrew interface.
to uninstall write these lines in the terminal:
  1. ./
  2. enter your password and press enter
  3. reboot
  4. if problems with hebrew interface occurres (that did not happened before the install) then write:
  5. ./
more screenshots are available at my hebrew forum at this post,
hope this will be of some use to some one,
