How to uninstall MacFUSE
Authored by: jsutton on May 21, '07 09:39:34AM

Regarding the uninstall script link to googlecode site. The script may need to be revised... I am posting a rev here and on the google site. The revised script is at the bottom of this post.

Read below for more info:

I had a few weird problems with macfuse... dvd/cd not mounting and just general
weirdness on my 10.4 pbook. I ran the script above, but I found something that may
need to be fixed in it

In the part where you change directories to /System/Library/Extensions and then
delete the fuse.kext file:

cd /System/Library/Extensions
sudo rm -r fusefs.kext

I found that fusefs.kext file was in the directory:

Not the one in the script:

I am not sure if the installer put mine in the wrong dir or this something that needs to be fixed in the script, but I thought everyone should know.

# Copy this script

cd /usr/local/bin
rm sshfs
sudo rm glib*
sudo rm pkg-config
sudo rm *gettext*
sudo rm *mount*

cd /usr/local/include
sudo rm -r fuse*
sudo rm -r glib-2.0
sudo rm gettext-po.h

cd /usr/local/lib
sudo rm -r pkgconfig
sudo rm -r glib*
sudo rm -r libg*
sudo rm -r *fuse*
sudo rm -r *gettext*

cd /usr/local/share
sudo rm -r glib*
sudo rm -r gettext

# Note: revised the target dir.
# previously was this dir which was incorrect:
# cd /System/Library/Extensions
# correct dir seems to be this one:
cd /Library/Extensions
sudo rm -r fusefs.kext

cd /System/Library/Filesystems
sudo rm -r fusefs.fs

sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions
# Note: Removed this line:
# shutdown -r now
# replaced it with a prompt at end of script telling user to restart:
echo " "
