How to uninstall properly once installed with bzr?

Asked by Fran├žois Godbout on 2014-03-28

I'm on Fedora and wanted to try GTGonline, so from the setup.py python script, I've installed system wide though now cannot uninstall. I desperately lack knowledge to. If it's not too dumb a question, would someone help me?

Hi Francois,
You need to uninstall each and every file individually.
You would not be having the list of files installed via setup.py so here is what you can do:

python setup.py install --record files.txt

Once you want to uninstall you can use xargs to do the removal:

cat files.txt | xargs rm -rf
