Uninstall Audacity and all its dependencies

Post by vince66 » Sun Jul 02, 2017 6:48 pm

Hello everybody,
I have successfully installed Audacity from the source code. To do this i cloned the source from the github repository.
My question now is:
in which way i can uninstall it and all its dependencies (included in the git package) ?

Thanks in advance.

Vincenzo.

Presumably to install Audacity you ran

Code: Select all

sudo make install
To uninstall, run

Code: Select all

sudo make uninstall
from the same location.

After uninstalling, you can remove packages that were automatically installed to satisfy dependencies for other packages and are now no longer needed, in the normal way with:

Code: Select all

sudo apt autoremove
CAUTION: Always look to see what will be removed before confirming removal.

To remove the Audacity source code, just delete it.

If you installed wxGtk and no longer need it, you can uninstall it with your package manager. Similarly, Git may be uninstalled with your package manager.
