Hello abo!

Unfortunately the python distutils setup script does not provide a uninstall function. Generally the distutil users have this workaround:

# python setup.py install --record instaled_files
# cat files.txt | xargs rm -rf

The first line installs USBManager again and create a 'log' of all installed files. The second lines redirects all files paths to rm -rf.

Done, USBManager is successfully removed.

Sorry, I've made a mistake. The correct lines would be:

# python setup.py install --record instaled_files
# cat instaled_files | xargs rm -rf

It needs administration permissions. If your using debian use sudo:

# sudo python setup.py install --record instaled_files
# cat instaled_files | sudo xargs rm -rf

Can you help with this problem?
