    So I was using monolingual to delete languages I don't need. Totally had it backwards and it started to delete the languages I wanted. I realized this as it was running and I stopped the delete. I guess I got a partial delete.

    I want to restore this to make sure I won't have any problems but I have absolutely no idea how. I searched at google and I found two things: Re-install OSX and there is somehow a way to only replace what I need, or do a backup from Time Machine.

    Can anyone help me out? I've had my iMac now for about 3 years but I'm still kind of clueless when it comes to this kind of stuff. Thanks!

    Just reinstall the OS and it will fix it. A normal OS reinstall will not wipe your data. Backup first just to be safe though.

    A downloadable AppleKeyboardLayouts.bundle

    Go to finder. On the menu you, do Go-->Go to folder--> /System/Library/Keyboard Layouts/

    Now copy the file into that folder. (unzip it first!!!!!!)

    You registered just for this post and resurrected it without knowing the Mac OS X version the OP uses or stating what Mac OS X version your layout comes from?
