How to uninstall Live on OSX 10.10?

If you google around, a lot of people say to delete your files in the following locations:

/Users/[username]/Library/Preferences/Ableton/
/Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/Ableton/

Problem is that the "Library" file is non-existent. I don't know if this is for everyone on OSX 10.10+, but it is for me. I definitely installed Ableton into whatever default folder was set up when I originally installed.

I cannot currently open up Live, to check where I installed it due to Live "quitting unsuspectingly", (which is why I am re-installing) so I don't know what else to do. Does OSX 10.10+ have a different installation location?

 

Thanks

    Don't thinks so. But it might be possible that these files are "hidden" due to your personal settings. Every OS version has a Library part, as far as i know

    To get into library, go to finder, and in the top menu click Go, hold down the alt key (option) and library will show up.

    The library is often a 'hidden' folder. You can go to Terminal and paste in the command: defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE 

    Then paste in the command: killall Finder

    A few files should appear on your desktop. (this may not happen if your desktop is empty) Then the 'Library' folder should appear in your Macintosh HD or your Users folders. It may not appear in a search though.
