Thumbs down Uninstalling Sigil

I want to uninstall Sigil from an old machine I have (I was never able to run it there, "illegal instruction, core dumped" issue) but, when I proceed with the "sudo make uninstall" I have this as an answer:

Quote:
make: *** No rule to make target `uninstall'. Stop.
What to do here? Do I have to remove the files manually?

How did you install?
Which version?
The old version the uninstall command had a dot slash that was needed (and did not use make)

I downloaded the source, and installed manually (configure, sudo make install), as per the INSTALL.txt instructions (although, I had my doubts at the beginning):

Quote:
== Compiling on Linux ==

Aside from the core Qt libraries, you will also need to install *libqt4-xml*,
*libqt4-svg*, *libqt4-webkit* and *libqt4-dev* (and their various dependencies)
which are not included by default in Qt.

This should be as simple as typing in the following command into your
terminal (on Debian-like systems):
{{{
sudo apt-get install libqt4-gui libqt4-svg libqt4-webkit libqt4-xml libqt4-dev
}}}
It is assumed you want to generate Makefiles. You can do this by creating
a new folder *outside* of the source distribution.

Now navigate to that folder with a terminal. Then type in and run
the following:
{{{
cmake -G "Unix Makefiles" -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release /path/to/extracted/folder
make
sudo make install
}}}
That builds and installs Sigil on Linux. By default, Sigil is installed
in `${CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX}/bin`, with `CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX` defaulting to
`usr/local`.

You can change the install location by running cmake like this:
{{{
cmake -G "Unix Makefiles" -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/new/install/prefix -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release /path/to/extracted/folder
}}}
Aside from using the install target, you can also build a binary
installer by invoking the `makeinstaller` build target.

Building from source in the repository is recommended, since code in the
repository should always be stable. If it's not, that's a bug report.

Regarding my version, the one in this machine it's the 0.5.3...

If you didn't change the install prefix, then:

Delete 'sigil' and/or 'sigil.sh' from /usr/local/bin
Delete the entire sigil directory in /usr/local/share
Delete 'sigil.png' from /usr/local/share/pixmaps
Delete 'sigil.desktop' from /usr/local/share/applications

That should be it (with the exception of the source directory you issued the 'make' commands in).

You're on your own with any packages you may have installed with apt-get.

That worked out. Thanks DiapDialer!

Not a problem

I forgot to mention that there might be some configuration files floating around in your home directory in the usual--normally hidden--places like '.local' or '.conf'. If the folder name isn't 'Sigil' it may be named after the original creator of the program (with older versions): 'Markovic Strahinja'.
