How do I uninstall SageMath 9.1 from MacBook running macOS 10.14.5 Mojave? It never installed properly and I want to get rid of it. I can do my computations on Cocalc. I do have Anaconda installed and I heard that it can interfer with the installation of SageMath.

As far as I understand, if you take care of removing Anaconda from your PATH the first time you start Sage after installing it, everything is fine and you can then restore the PATH and not get interference.

Happy to help you uninstall, but also happy to help you solve any installation problems. Don't hesitate if you want to try again.

If you have Anaconda installed you could install Sage via Conda using the conda-forge channel. That way there won't be a danger of Anaconda interfering in bad ways with Sage. That might works better for you than installing Sage another way.

If you installed the app and want to uninstall it, put it in the trash and empty the trash.

If you installed the non-app version, put the SageMath folder in the trash and empty the trash.

To get rid of the last bits of Sage, remove the .sage folder in your home folder.

That's all.
