i want to uninstall Soundflower...
The Sunflower package says:
"From an account with administrator privileges, double-click on
the Uninstall_Soundflower.command file."

But i don't see that anywhere in what i downloaded.

And I don't see any app installed that I could drag on to CleanApp.

Also I'm not that comfortable using terminal. (terrified actually)

tnx in advance

were you able to remove soundflower from sound preferences?
i am not able to do so - even after using the provided uninstall script.


update: I restarted my Mac and it worked. So pl ignore the question.

I was just looking for the same answer, anyone? How do you remove "Soundflower" from your sound preferences?

I have followed the instructions to uninstall Soundflower 2ch and 16ch using Airfoil but have not succeeded so far.

I also wish to uninstall BoomDevice all of which I had on my old MacBook Pro which is 5 years old.

I am now using a MacBook Pro 4 Core and did not do a clean install and am now paying for not doing so as I have to uninstall apps piecemeal.

Can someone please help me?

Here is my issue. I have a Mac Mini running audio over HDMI to the TV. Seems to work well, until recently. Some movie downloads play loud static noise instead of the audio. When I go to the sound prefs, I see that instead of SHARP HDMI (as it should be below), the prefs default to anything else but. I am trying to get it working in XBMC, but even in VLC the audio is screwed up. I have tried to uninstall Soundflower, but that doesn't seem to resolve the issue. Anyone else have any thoughts?


edit: the issue with the audio was a setting in XBMC. All is well now.
