Installed SL, how do I delete extra printers & languages & install qt7?

Posted:

Ok, I just installed SL (not a clean install) and updated it. In the process, I installed the extra printers and languages which I did not want to do because I never saw the customize button.



Does anybody know how to remove the extra printers and where the files are? Same for the languages.



I'd also like to install Quicktime 7 pro. Can this be done with pacifist or can I run the SL install disk and then choose it from the customize button?



Thanks in advance to all who answer.

    SL is supposed to identify printers you've used (from stuff on your hard drive, if you didn't get rid of it) and/or are using. Then it installs only the drivers you need.



    Languages? I don't know.



    If you try to open something that requires QuickTime 7, SL is supposed to ask if you want to download and install it.

    Printers download on demand, as you need them. In theory.



    Monolingual



    QuickTime 7 is on the SL Install Disk. And it's on Google.

    Thanks Gregg and Ireland, I was able to use pacifist to extract QT7. I also installed the latest HP drivers for my printer and found where to delete the ones it installed. As for the languages, I'll find them some day if they are on my HD.



    I will say I am not happy with the changes they made to Preview. But so far, everything else I really like. I didn't do a clean install, I just installed over my existing OS and my computer is definitely faster. Good job Apple (except for what you did to Preview...)

    That new annotations bar alone in Preview makes it a way better app.

    Or this one on that page:

    Well, I'm going to play around with it some more. Maybe there are some added features that will make it a wash for me.

    Well, I used Preview some more tonight and I found a change that I really like... You can highlight (or underline) text just by selecting it. This is definitely a time saver for me.
