how to uninstall manually installed vlc player
 
Hi,

I have installed vlc 1.0.5 manually, because of some reasons I have to uninstall it. I tried deleting the folders naming vlc and binary file but some how it not getting removed completely. Can somebody tell me how to uninstall it. I am using ubuntu 9.10.

How did you install it? Be as specific and detailed as possible.

I have the source code, I followed the instructions given in INSTALL file.

The steps are as follows:

Configuring VLC
===============
./configure --enable-debug

Building VLC
============
`make' to build VLC.

Installing and running VLC
==========================
make install

Is that what you want you need?

Did you try running "make uninstall"?

Cheers,

Next time you compile and install something from source, make sure to use checkinstall. There are other options (namely stow and autotools magic) but checkinstall is a nobrainer.
