How to completely remove Cura OSX

Recommended Posts

Posted · How to completely remove Cura OSX

After a unfortunate experience with Cura 14.03, I uninstalled Cura, and went back to 14.02,

but now Cura 14.02 does not function properly, menu buttons take ages to activate, and it runs heavy on the processor when doing minute things.

I tried uninstalling everything and reinstall Cura, but I keep having the same problems,

How do I remove every little bit of bytes from OSX, so I can freshly install Cura 14.02 ?

    Thanks I'll try that tomorrow :)

    Tried it tonight, and it did not work, Cura went through the new setup as expected, but pressing certain buttons just won't react, even opening the expert panel does nothing,

    until I open a new document, or cancel a print, then suddenly all the menus appear that I pressed, even several times the same menu :shock:

    I made a new user on Mavericks, and there Cura seems to work normal,

    so usually a program that was installed last is the culprit, and the only one I've installed was Cura 14.03 (the irony)

    14.03 seems to work fine for me, and I can switch back and forth between it and 14.01 and 14.02RC5 without any problems - also running under Mavericks.

    You might try using Disk Utility to repair permissions, and see if that makes any difference. Also, note that at various times I have seen issues where some dialog boxes etc don't show up when they should - clicking the dock icon for Cura seems to fix that immediately.
