problem with expocity, want to uninstall

I installed expocity today (after a lot of work making sure I had all the right gconf2-devel packages etc). Anyway, when I restarted, I notced that it took away the ability for my metacity to have the curved/advanced themes (Maybe this is because the metacity version was newer than the Expocity, which was last released Jan 2).

Anyway, I want to uninstall expocity and get back my curved themes (turns out, the expose-like function wasn't all that useful to me. I use alt-tab much more efficently the usual way).

I tried re-installing a new version of metacity from It brough back my alt-tab functionality (by reassigniing the keybindings), but the themes still don't seem to work properly.

Any ideas?

i don't have the programs, but why not just cd to where you installed expocity and make uninstall?
