Downloaded Xfence beta for mac. Everytime I tired to open a file, I'd get the accept/decline box. Became un-workable. Tried uninsalling and removed launch agents. Now, my mac says don't have permissions and casnnot even open a pdf file or send something to trash. HELP!!
sorry to hear your troubles. Please try the following:
rm -rf "/Volumes/Macintosh HD/Library/Extensions/XFENCE.kext”
kextcache –u /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD
After installing XFENCE, you can find the uninstall script here: /Library/XFENCE/uninstall.sh
I'm attaching a copy of it to this post, in case you've already removed /Library/XFENCE.
For reference, here's the XFENCE User Guide which contains some tips for troubleshooting and uninstalling. It can also be found in the installed product's Help menu.
Thanks very much for both posts. I feel like an idiot for missing the uninstall info in the docs. I think I panicked after I screwed up the uninstall. I'll try to follow instructions this time. Thanks again.
No need to feel like an idiot. It has become clear from our XFENCE beta program that the uninstallation user experience is something we need to prioritise in future versions, as well as visibility of our documentation. Trying out our software should always be as risk-free as possible.
