Description Cyril 2011-09-22 07:28:05 UTC
A Readme in Mac Mono package installer reads:

A simple uninstallMono.sh script is included in the disk image.  This is shell script that must be run as root, and it will remove the Mono.framework and the links in /usr/bin.

However the disk image contains only MonoFramework-MDK-2.10.5_0.macos10.xamarin.x86.pkg.

Expected: either the unininstall script is included in DMG or Readme file doesn't advertise it.

Mono version: Mono.framework 2.10.5_0.

Additionally the proper bug category for this (Mono Distribution/Packaging) is not found here in Xamarin bugzilla, though it is in the list in http://www.mono-project.com/Bugs (link to adding bug in this category is broken).

I can CONFIRM the above report by Cyril.

I just wanted to add, after taking a look at the install package with Pacifict, ALL of the installed MonoFramework-MRE-2.10.5 files appear to be contained in:
Root drive -> Library -> Frameworks -> Mono.framework

...therefore, aMonoFramework-MRE-2.10.5 could be fully "Uninstalled" by simply deleting the "Mono.framework" folder found at the above indicated location.

All the best!

Going through old bugs. Reassigning to release.
Comment 4 Rodrigo Kumpera 2014-01-12 01:28:44 UTC
We no longer ships DMGs for mono, not sure how we could offer that shell script instead.
Comment 5 Alexander Köplinger [MSFT] 2017-05-16 22:23:18 UTC
You can uninstall Mono with the commands mentioned in http://www.mono-project.com/docs/about-mono/supported-platforms/osx/#uninstalling-mono-on-mac-os-x.

I'll remove the note about the uninstallMono.sh from the installer.
