    Hi, I'm a total Mac n00b so bear with me. I tried installing SIMBL yesterday and it says it will be installed into the InputManagers folder of /library/InputManagers.

    So that's what I tried and the installation seemed to go smoothly. When I searched /library for /InputManagers however, there's no such folder! I have 3 questions: 1. Where did SIMBL install itself if the folder it is supposed to install itself to isn't there? 2. Why isn't /InputManagers there? (Has it been removed in recent Leopard updates?) 3. How do I remove SIMBL from the system? Neither Spotlight nor Quicksilver finds "SIMBL" anywhere else than in my applications folder -- does this mean it wasn't actually installed even though the installation was seemingly successful?

    I'm very confused. Thanks in advance.

    There are two library folders, did you check both?

    One is in your user directory ~/library
    One is directly one the root of your hard drive /library/

    Hi, I'm not sure. I might have checked only one of them (?). How do you get to both?

    In finder, go to Go->Go to folder

    type "~/library" for the first one and "/library/" for the second one
