I know the thread How to uninstall Qt Creator on Mac Yosemite but I cannot locate Qt folders in $HOME/Library/. The following command is also unsuccessful

sudo QtSDK/SDKMaintenanceTool.app/Contents/MacOS/SDKMaintenanceTool 

I think Qt version is 5.1. The whole package took about 14 Gb which I cannot keep anymore in my system.

How can you uninstall Qt in El Capitan?

New location of Qt folders is at /Users/Masi/Qt where you can find SDKMaintenanceTool which you just double click and select uninstall all components. Source here.

    This was the right solution. However, the app's name was MaintenanceTool.app. I had El Capitan and Qt 5.5.

When I have to uninstall apps on a Mac, there is a utility that was reccomended by Macworld.com that has been an indespensible tool in my Mac toolbox: FreeMacSoft's AppCleaner

It has a super easy to use Drag-n-Drop interface or (my preference) you can search for the App you want to delete with their search function.

enter image description here

The tool also deletes all of the other files that the application creates but are not located in the application folder (like Launch Daemons)


This free app has been indispensable to me for keeping my system tidy when I remove unwanted applications.

  • Great application which does the work many applications should do to keep the place clean.
