    Hello, everyone, I just got my MBA last week and it is my first mac. I am an informatics student and I need the Rosetta software to run some other software. I googled and everyone said Rosetta is an optional software in the Mac OS X install DVD. I checked the Reinstall Drive USB but I didn't find it.
    Does anyone know how can I get this software or where can I download it please? Thank you in advance.

    If it works like it did last year for me, then Mac OS will prompt you to install it when it is first used. I seem to remember the installer downloaded it, but don't quote me on that.

    Rosetta is downloaded and installed on first use.

    Just try to install something that needs it. OS X will prompt you to install Rosetta via Software Update.

    Thank you for your replies. I use Octave to compile matlab files. when I tried to run a "plot" function, it said:
    You need the Rosetta software to run gnuplot. The Rosetta installer is in Optional Installs on your Mac OS X installation disc.

    And it didn't start automatically to download the rosetta. Can you tell me which application I should run to start the auto-download?
    Thank you.
