How to install additional fonts included with Mac OS X 10.3

This article has been archived and is no longer updated by Apple.

Mac OS X 10.3 comes with additional language fonts that aren't part of the default install set, but you can easily install them at any time, no matter what version of Mac OS X 10.3 you're currently using. These language fonts include:

  • Arabic
  • Hebrew
  • Thai
  • Cyrillic
  • Devanagari
  • Gujarati
  • Punjabi
  • Armenian
  • Cherokee
  • Inuktitut

If you'd like to install any of these fonts, follow these steps:

  1. Insert Mac OS X 10.3 Install Disc 3 (if you have install CDs) or the Mac OS X 10.3 Software Install DVD.
  2. If you have an Install CD, open the Packages folder that's on the disc. Then skip to step 4. If you have an Install DVD, continue to the next step.
  3. Note the name of the DVD on the desktop (such as "iMac Software"). In the Finder, choose Go to Folder from the Go menu, and type

    /volumes/name of DVD/System/Installation/Packages

    (where "name of DVD" is the name of your DVD), then click Go.

  4. Double-click "AdditionalFonts.pkg" to open the installer.
  5. Follow the onscreen instructions to install the fonts.

About additional Asian fonts

Your Mac OS X 10.3 disc also includes an installation package called Additional Asian Fonts, which contains additional fonts supporting Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, and Korean. This package is installed by default with Mac OS X 10.3. However, if you customized your original Mac OS X 10.3 installation and didn't install these fonts, you can install them later using the same steps above.

The AdditionalAsianFonts.pkg is located on Mac OS X 10.3 Install Disc 2 (for CD installations) or the Mac OS X 10.3 Software Install DVD.
