    Hi,
    how can I remove MacGPG ? It made the startup of OSX much slower and I want to remove it. I tried the OSX Package Manager but it doesn't work.

    Thanks,
    Tex

    Did it come with an installer? It should be in one of the UNIX folders at the root of your hard disk, if you're desperate, you could hunt around in there for the correct folders. A spotlight spearch which is set to search for invisible AND visible files AND system files with "MacGPG" in the name should find a lot of the files.

    You sure about that? Last I checked it didn't install any LaunchDaemons/LaunchAgents, and didn't run anything on boot...

    Yes. When OSX starts, when the desktop shows, there is written "start-gpg-agent" in the menu bar and it last for like 15 seconds.



    There is no uninstaller with it. It is just a .pkg

    I've just found out that I could just disable the loading of the gpg agent using Lingon and disable the com.sourceforge.macgpg2.gpg-agent entry.
