Hi Bright Star,

In the file you downloaded to install, the dmg, there is an uninstall
script.  You can download the dmg again if you removed it.
Doubleclick on the uninstall script and it uninstalls dnssec-trigger.

If you want to use unbound without dnssec-trigger, perhaps you can use
unbound from macports?

It should have worked, I wonder why, this would need debugging with
setting verbosity in the dnssec-trigger.conf and unbound.conf higher
and looking in the system logs.  But if you do not want to use it,
then, the easiest is to manually compile and install unbound.
