[How to] Uninstall MacFUSE Using Terminal - Mac OS X

If a graphic uninstaller from the system settings window doesn't work use a terminal window. In the description below which will uninstall three products (MacFUSE, OSXFUSE and NTFS 3G):

1. Access the root account. (You will be prompted to enter your password):

sudo su

2. Execute uninstallation scripts:


3. Additionally you can remove files and directories, that uninstallation scripts don't remove:

rm -r /Library/PreferencePanes/MacFUSE.prefPane
rm /Library/Preferences/com.google.macfuse.plist
rm /Library/Logs/ntfs-3g_util.log
rm /Library/Preferences/org.catacombae.macntfs-3g.DriverSettings.plist
rm /Library/Preferences/org.catacombae.macntfs-3g.DriverSettings.plist.lockfile
rm /private/var/run/ntfs-3g_daemon.pid
rm -r /private/var/root/Library/Caches/autoinstall-macfuse-core
rm -r /Users/admin/Library/Caches/com.github.osxfuse.OSXFUSEPrefPane

4. Paranoically you can find and remove some other files:

find / -name "*macfuse*" -mount -print
find / -name "*osxfuse*" -mount -print

find / -name "*macfuse*" -mount -print -exec rm -r {} \;
find / -name "*osxfuse*" -mount -print -exec rm -r {} \;
