    FLTK compiled program uninstalation

    Hello guys,

    Im new to these forums so excuse me for if im in the wrong section here.

    now i havent ever used FLTK or compiled a program before but i somehow managed to install a program which i later found out, that i dont need at all.

    i used this command line:
    g++ DoConfig.cpp -o DoConfigure -s $(fltk-config --cxxflags --ldflags)
    now i want to uninstall the program and purge all fltk libs and stuff that goes with it accordingly.

    also, i have no need for g++ anymore. I think
    sudo apt-get remove g++ --purge
    would do the job?

    thanks in advance.

    this might do it:
    rm ./DoConfigure # in the folder you ran g++ from
    apt-get autoremove --purge libfltk1.1-dev # or libfltk1.3-dev
    autoremove will only work if you installed all fltk stuff via this one meta package
    if you installed them manually you have to remove them manually (= list them all in apt-get remove)

    thanks for the reply!

    i remember adding one package manually which asked for all the libs. Ill just try and see which package that exactly was.

    However, I already manually removed the folder i did the compiling in through my window manager. is it removed or did i just #!@$ things up?
