Did you install it from the .dmg or by some other means?

Hi Martin,
  Appreciate your help. I used the .dmg and downloaded it form http://bazaar-vcs.org/Download in the category Mac OS X 10.5 installer.

Hi johnq,
   You can remove all files added by the installer, to get a list of this files you should:

   1) fireup the installer
   2) File --> Show files (or Command + I )

   This bring a window with each installed package and the list of files.
   Most of the files are relative to /Library/Python/2.5/site-packages/, If i'm not wrong only bzr (the executable) and bzr.1 (the man page) have a different location.
  * bzr (executable) is located in /usr/bin
  * bzr.1 should be in /usr/local/share/man/man1/bzr.1 or /usr/share/man/man1/bzr.1

Hope this helps.

P.S: Also there is an application, Desinstaller3, that apparently provides a uninstall/remove feature for this kind of package installation (not Bazaar specific), but I never used it.

All installations create a file under /Library/Receipts, so if you deleted the package itself you can still use Guillermo's advice by finding the installation receipt and double-clicking it.

phanatic was also rumored to work on an uninstaller.

vila is right, I have not-so-well-tested version of an unistaller. I'll put it up somewhere, so people can test and help to improve it...

I would be interested in this too.

In 10.6 Bazaar does not create a folder in /Library/Receipts, maybe it puts it somewhere else? Any clue how to find it? Such thing still exists?

I installed from a dmg file which included a mpkg. Is there an easier way of finding the installed files other than reverse engineering the package contents?

Can you help with this problem?
