删除|remove|uninstall aria2 on Mac
I want to remove/uninstall aria2, but I can’t find the uninstaller or anything that could help to remove this application.
I installed aria2 by downloading a dmg file from https://aria2.github.io/.
Aria2 is a command line tool — that means there is no icon in the Application folder, which also means that I can’t just drop the icon to the trash to uninstall it like other applications.
There is an solution from http://www.uninstallpro.com/uninstalltips/how-to-uninstall-aria2-1.14.1-Build-1-completely.html only for Windows. I’m using OSX, so that’s not a really solution. (If you’re using Windows, you may have a try.)
I checked the Google and Baidu again and found nothing but an old Q&A. http://sourceforge.net/p/aria2/discussion/540047/thread/8058c915/
Here someone asked the user to remove the /usr/local/*, so I open this directory to check, and find a folder names “aria2”.
And then I used the “find” command to check if there is any other file or folder related to aria2. It seemed that I can only remove this /usr/local/aria2.
Drop it to the trash.
Besides, there is another file named “aria2c” in /private/etc/paths.d/aria2c, delete it.
If you want to install and uninstall aria2 easily, you’d better use Homebrew to do this.
If you have more suggestions, please tell me.
I just find a tool to help you uninstall the application installed in pkg way.
If you wanna make yourself feel better, use this to remove aria2. I just tested it and it really worked for me.
