How to delete an older version of Emacs?
I installed Emacs 24.1 from source and compiled in the directory /usr/local/src. But after that I got Emacs 24.2 from ppa:cassou. Now I have two versions of Emacs and I want to get rid of the older ones.
If have emacs and emacs-24.1 (both are the 24.1 version) in /usr/local/bin. And I also have emacs24-x (24.1 version) and emacs24 (24.2 version) in /usr/bin.
I want to keep only the 24.2 version and I want to delete the others. But I don't want to mess things up. Also I click the emacs icon in the laucher it opens emacs 24.1. How do I change it to emacs 24.2?
I know that there are many things I still need to learn about Linux in general. This is a very basic question. I hope anyone can give a hint. Thanks for your answer.

What about completely purging emacs and then reinstalling the version you want?
