Removing the "PaperCut Host User" Account on the Mac

Q I have recently uninstalled PaperCut and there is an account called the “PaperCut Host User” still on my system. How do I remove this?

This account should have been removed when the Uninstall.command script was run. The account can be manually removed by either using the Netinfo tool, or using the following command at the command-line as follows:

1. Open Utilities → Terminal
2. Type:
        sudo dscl . delete /users/papercut
Enter your password if/when requested.
