Currently Being ModeratedSep 5, 2006 7:26 PM (in response to JMEH)NICE!! it worked for me too...so is anybody else wondering why it was on russia´s apple page and not on the U.S one??? i sort of expected a bit more from apple in fixing such a small or easy issue in my opinionimac G5 (isight), Mac OS X (10.4.7)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 6, 2006 6:35 AM (in response to WebMotiva.com)I thought that I broke mine, clearly I have not and have just sent feedback to apple. I hope they sort it out as it is one of the best effects.iMac w/iSight G5 1.9GHz 17", Mac OS X (10.4.7)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 6, 2006 7:32 AM (in response to WebMotiva.com)Brilliant!
This solved the problem on our iMac G5 2.1 GHz.
A direct link to the file is nice, so here it is: http://www.apple.ru/macosx/download/package/PhotoBooth1.2RU.dmg.zip

Currently Being ModeratedSep 9, 2006 10:25 AM (in response to Hugo Krantz)Yeah, it worked like a charm. Hope when (if) Apple fixes the US version this Russian one won't present problems for us.
I have to say, it's good to have pop art again. I liked that one the best as well.iMac 20" G5 iSight, Mac OS X (10.4.7), 1.5 GB Ram, mac mini's (g4's) 1.25 GHz, 1.33 GHz, and 1.5 GHz running 10.4.7
Currently Being ModeratedSep 12, 2006 2:25 PM (in response to Jeffrey Bonner)Oooh I feel bad . . . I just downloaded the QT 7.1.3 update and I get a message saying it can't install on my mini because it does not support the Mac's language I think I may have hosed the system with this Russian fix!
I have AppleCare, and I'm on hold right now, if I get a solution from Apple I will promptly post it here.
I hope no one else has this problem, I would feel bad because I was the one who mentioned the Russian Photobooth update in the first place.

Currently Being ModeratedSep 13, 2006 5:11 AM (in response to John H Trimble)Same for me.
What did you find out from AppleCare? Seems like there should be some type of setting or flag to tell it the language is English not Russian.iMac 20" G5 iSight, Mac OS X (10.4.7), 1.5 GB Ram, mac mini's (g4's) 1.25 GHz, 1.33 GHz, and 1.5 GHz running 10.4.7
Currently Being ModeratedSep 13, 2006 6:46 PM (in response to Jeffrey Bonner)Well, their advice was to archive and install, but I decided it was time for a good cleaning, so I backed up my home folders (and some non-baseline apps like Photobooth) to an external drive, zeroed out my hd, reinstalled Tiger.
Photobooth works (with Pop-Art!), QT 7.1.3 installed, iTunes 7 installed, cookies and keychains back in place, everything happy.

Currently Being ModeratedSep 13, 2006 10:48 PM (in response to WebMotiva.com)Happiness can't last forever. Of course the same happened to me. I can no longer update the system.
I will try to run the 10.4.7 Combo with the machine in target mode. If that doesn't work I'll archive and install.
Too bad Apple just can't patch Photo Booth.Xserve G5 2x2 / PowerMac G5 2x2, Mac OS X (10.4.7)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 13, 2006 11:16 PM (in response to Hugo Krantz)oh man....i have no idea what to do now..i cant update either anybody know a step by step way of fixing what we´ve done?? if you guys could be so kind of course..thanks!
i also tried installing 10.4.7 back again but it gives me an error of not fulfilling certain requirements...imac G5 (isight), Mac OS X (10.4.7)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 14, 2006 12:09 AM (in response to Hugo Krantz)Combo updater won't run, even when in target mode, and machine doesn't boot with Tiger DVD so I can't even reinstall system. :-/
When trying to boot from DVD the gray Apple turns into a prohibition sign and it stops booting.
Now what?Xserve G5 2x2 / PowerMac G5 2x2, Mac OS X (10.4.7)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 14, 2006 4:48 AM (in response to Hugo Krantz)Hey guys ~ it's not that bad. Your EASIEST option is to 'install and archive' using the original CD (#1) that came with your machine. I did this last night. I DID however customize my install (you can click on 'customize' before actually installing).
I unchecked just about everything except the OS and Photobooth. I have iLife '06 installed on my machine and didn't want it to install iLife '05. All is well and was worth the little effort.
When using the 'Software Update' afterward, I did NOT update to 10.4.7...assuming that I'd screw up my Photobooth again :o) So, we'll wait and see what Apple comes up with before I do that again. All other updates completed successfully.
Good luck!iMac G5, Mac OS X (10.4.2), 20" monitor
