NTFG-3G Uninstall - Help!
I am new to MAC and being used to windows finding it really hard to uninstall this third party software that i downloaded from CNET to be able to access an external drive that is formatted as NTFS.
After I installed this software: http://download.cnet.com/NTFS-3G/300...-10913782.html
I tried to connect my harddrive and it has been giving me this error.
I then went on to remove this NTFS-3G application by dragging it onto the 'Trash' icon hoping this would uninstall it, but it dint.
I have googled this topic and found various forums giving ideas on how to remote it manually. I tried running these scripts on the terminal but these dint work as i am assuming these were meant for a different verison of NTFS-3G.
I have also removed the MACFUSE preference pane. I cant find any referece to NTFS-3G when I do a spot light search. I dont see anything related to NTFS-3G or Tuxera or MACFUSE on the system preference pane.
I have a MAC AIR running OS-X Lion 10.7.3
Can someone please help me remove this program. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
"NTFS-3G could not mount /dev/disk1s1
at /Volumes/TOSHIBA EXT because the following problem occurred:
dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/local/lib/libfuse.2.dylib
Referenced from: /usr/local/bin/ntfs-3g
Reason: image not found"

I have tried the help on this thread already, the search does not bring anything related to NTFS-3G or Tuxera.
Is there any other way to get to these files to delete them?

Resolved error message
I had the same issue with the error message and it apparently has to do with MacFuse install only using supporting 32bit but I have a 64bit Mac. If you would like to fix it instead of uninstalling it then read on.
I had followed the steps outlined here http://macinformers.com/how-to-NTFS-...r-macosx-lion/
after which I received the error.
The solution was to install MacFuse core libraries that support 64bit which can be found here
After I installed this presto everything worked just fine and I can read and write to my NTFS external hard disk.
Not sure if I stilled needed the MacFuse install linked in the article above but I did not uninstall it.
Hope this helps someone.

Full read/write NTFS access should be something that Apple includes as part of the OS.
For an OS that claims "just works", this should work. Not as though NTFS formatted drives are rare.

If it's working now let it be, but fyi. last time I looked at ntfs-3g on osx, osxfuse was the successor to macfuse, and macfuse is no longer being developed...
Also, fuse4x (which the macports ntfs-3g port currently depends on) has been merged with osxfuse
