    How to UNINSTALL "Motion"

    Wondering if anyone can help me figure out how to uninstall Motion (

    I've poured over the documentation, Googled the web, requested support via the app's wiki, and sent e-mail to the app's developer. Have not been able to get an answer.

    The app works great, BUT it was initially (and incorrectly, as far as I can tell) run as a superuser (sudo motion). That caused all manner of files and folders to be owned by root.

    I want to uninstall the app, then reinstall as a regular user to avoid having to manage files etc. as a superuser.

    I removed motion with
    sudo apt-get remove motion
    I couldn't get it to work the way i wanted it to
    There's no place like
    SELECT * FROM users WHERE clue > 0 AND dumbass = FALSE;
