How can I remove version 0.7.4dev (and go back to previous one due to lacking close to tray functionality)?

AllTray uses the GNU build system. To uninstall it, just go back to the source tree from which you built it, and type "make uninstall"; this will remove AllTray's files from where it installed them.

If you do not still have the source tree, you can download it again and go through the "./configure && make && sudo make install" that you did before (with the same options, if you installed the new AllTray with something like "--prefix=/somewhere/else" before), and then say "make uninstall", and it will remove it.

If you just installed it normally, it will remove AllTray from /usr/local and if you still have an older version of AllTray in /usr, nothing more is necessary. Otherwise, reinstall your operating system's AllTray package and you'll have the old version back.

Let me know if you need any more help on this.
