To uninstall the Mac Print Scout from a Mac workstation:

Silent Uninstall

To silently uninstall the Mac Print Scout from the command line, run this command:


sudo SILENT_UNINSTALL=1 "/Library/Application Support/Pharos/PrintScout/Uninstall.app/Contents/MacOS/applet"


You can also use the shell script SilentUninstall.sh to run the uninstall. Open the Terminal and run the following command:


sudo /Library/Application\ Support/Pharos/PrintScout/SilentUninstall.sh


NOTE:  Running the Uninstall.app silently from the command line on Mac OS X 10.13 throws an error. The workaround is to use the shell script SilentUninstall.sh.


When a Mac Print Scout is uninstalled, a notification is sent to Beacon and the Scout State property is set to Uninstalled.
