I'm new to coding and the mac OS and I'm trying to delete a locked file under application support but I'm not sure what code I need to put into terminal in order to do that. If somebody could help, that would be awesome. Thanks!

  • Unlock the file, as described here superuser.com/questions/40749/… and then use rm filename – Barmar Aug 21 '14 at 4:39
  • Well what I'm trying to do is to uninstall this program called blue coat unified agent without the administration password. I'm not sure if you know an idea that could uninstall this or know a way to get around it – James Aug 21 '14 at 16:04
  • I thought you just meant that it was a file in your own account that you'd locked with Get Info. If you're not using an admin account, you can't make changes at the system level -- that's the whole point of separating admin from ordinary accounts. – Barmar Aug 21 '14 at 16:10
  • Don't fall into the trap of the XY problem. Your question as written currently does not actually explain the problem that you've made apparent in the comments. – grg Aug 24 '14 at 9:51
