This has been a rough week for Mac Interface. Maybe not in and of itself, but perhaps on this specific Mac Mini, with the specific version leaps that I’ve made of late.
For one example, I was getting working audio, but couldn’t see anything, though I could still see the list of users at the lower-left corner, could click on “Thoys@Music” and I would show up there, and audio still worked both ways. So I could explain to Thoys and Kevin the problem I was having, and Thoys talked me through deleting…
(user_dir)/Library/Application Support/High Fidelity/Interface/data8
…and bingo, stuff worked again.
That lasted only for the remainder of that one evening. Next day, I was on my KelvinD domain, and all I see is white glow. No list of users. The Esc key doesn’t go to lobby. Typing a different domain name in the address bar does nothing. Reloading Default Scripts - nothing. Stuck.
So - used CleanMyMac2 to “completely uninstall” Interface.
Why does the data8 folder persist? Dunno.
Took matters into my own hands, and deleted entire High Fidelity folder.
Then, re-installed Interface.
Then, launched Interface.
Boom. I’m at KelvinD. Questions:
- How does it know that “KelvinD” domain even exists?
- How does it know my login credentials?
- How did it save my horribly borked misconfiguration?
So I need some advice on how to completely wipe High Fidelity stuff from this Mac’s long term memory. I don’t want to reformat and then Time Machine Restore back to a week before I ever heard of you guys. That would be brutal.
