I have ImageMagick installed on my Mac. I manually installed it and the dependencies.

However, it is causing some problems with brew doctor, so I would like to just uninstall it. After uninstalling it, I will:

brew install imagemagick

I am not sure how to uninstall it, so any help getting me started in the right direction would be great!


I have decided to abandon this for now. I will be leaving it as is, and using homebrew to install it when I upgrade to Lion. Thanks.

It would imagine brew uninstall imagemagick... –  Matt Ball May 17 '11 at 14:08

This question is unanswerable, as we don't know how or where you installed ImageMagick… You should check the documentation of your install package. –  ghoppe May 17 '11 at 16:08

Please try brew remove imagemagick

Sorry my bad ;) If you manually installed it, goto the root directory where you downloaded the sourcecode and try sudo make uninstall. If you already deleted the install files, redownload the source file and untar it. Then you can cd to the source dir. and use sudo make uninstall to uninstall.

I think what he's saying is that he did not install it with homebrew, but he wishes to do so. In which case this does not answer his question. –  Harald Hanche-Olsen May 17 '11 at 15:46

Homebrew can show you which files in /usr/local aren't under it's control: brew list --unbrewed

This list should be a good start for cleaning up, or if you just want to focus on stuff that may interfere with homebrew: brew list --unbrewed | egrep '^(lib|include)'
