    The uninstaller.sh file is not a document to cut and paste into Terminal, it is a script and should be executed. To run it, simply copy the file to your Downloads directory. Go to Terminal, type

    cd Downloads
    sudo ./uninstaller.sh

    Enter your password when it requested.

    This will remove the drivers, if it is installed.

    No, that is just what they call the file; it isn't installing the installer. The installer file can have just about any name. It has nothing to do with the cu.* thing or anything else. It is just a file name.

    So, disconnect the rig from the computer. (completely, don't just turn it off, remove the USB cable) Run the uninstall script. Reboot. Run the installer. Reboot.

    Open Terminal and type

    cd /Library/Extensions
    ls *.kext

    Do you see a file called SiLabsUSBDriver.kext?

    Don't think it worked. Same issue with not being able to type in password over icon of key I think.

    I tried it twice. Second time didn't see the type in password request.

    This is what shows up in Terminal.

    iMac:~ daleavery$ cd Downloads
    iMac:Downloads daleavery$ sudo ./uninstaller.sh
    sudo: ./uninstaller.sh: command not found
    iMac:Downloads daleavery$

    The uninstaller.sh shell shows up in the Downloads folder.

    In the Terminal, type the following:

    cd Downloads
    ls *

    Sorry. I missed your second comment prior to working on the first. So this time I opened Terminal after rebooting the Mac and typed in what your requested. This is what comes up:

    iMac:~ daleavery$ cd /Library/Extensions

    iMac:Extensions daleavery$ ls*.kext

    -bash: ls*.kext: command not found

    iMac:Extensions daleavery$

    Notice that I am constantly getting the "command not found" statement. What's with that?

    ls *.kext

    There is a space between ls and the *.kext

    iMac:~ daleavery$ cd /Library Extensions
    iMac:Library daleavery$ ls *.kext
    ls: *.kext: No such file or directory
    iMac:Library daleavery$

    So now we know that I still have not gotten the driver downloaded properly.
    Let me start over.

    I don't know what this icon of a key thing is. Are you running under a restricted account of some sort, or is your account an administrator account? I can't think of anything that matches your description.


    If the kext is not there, then the driver is not installed.

    In the first step ou have to type: cd /Library/Extensions
    Note the slash between Library and Extensions.

    Good catch, Tom. I didn't see that. Definitely won't work if you don't have the correct commands :)

    As I said before, Dale, open Terminal and type

    cd /Library/Extensions
    ls *.kext

    Better yet, copy and paste each line one at a time...those "/", ".", and spaces are all important.
