Uninstall Inquisitor and/or Glims


Recently I’ve giving Glims a try. Even though it tries to combine what Inquisitor and Saft both do into one single free application, I was very disappointed in the ease of use and look.

Before trying Glims, I had to uninstall (remove) Inquisitor that was already running on my version of Webkit and Safari. To do this, I opened up terminal and typed the following commands (with my password that is):

sudo rm -rf "/Library/InputManagers/Inquisitor/"
sudo rm -rf "/Library/Receipts/inquisitor*"
sudo rm -rf "~/Library/Application Support/Inquisitor/"

After couple hours of use, I wanted to switch back to Inquisitor, which meant that I had to remove Glims. To do that action, I pulled up terminal, yet again, and typed the follow:

sudo rm -rf "/Library/InputManagers/Glims/"
sudo rm -rf "~/Library/Application Support/Glims/"

That should take care of everything, leaving my computer nice and clean.
