    How To Remove a self compiled tvheadend

    From github, I d/l'd the zip of tvheadend. Extracted it into /home/username and did:


    ./configure
    make
    sudo make install

    then calling: tvheadend in a terminal and surfing to: http://localhost:9981/simple.html

    shows the browser blank or empty.

    How do I remove the files (objects, what-have-you) that I installed using the above 3 commands?

    The entire set of files and terminal output can be seen at: http://pastebin.com/Eh0GLz4v

    Self compiled programs don't show up in the package manager. Unless it comes with an uninstall script, you have to locate the pieces and remove them manually. That can be easy or painful, depending on your program. Some programs install their components inside one or a few folders, in that case you can just remove those folders. Some may have pieces scattered over the file system, there is no packaging standard.

    For future references you should install checkinstall from the repo. This will create a .deb when you compile from source with it (change "sudo make install" to "sudo checkinstall" in your last step of compiling) and it will show up in the packaging manager (e.g synaptic) and you can remove it easily.

    try going to the directory you ran make install in, and run
    Code:
    sudo make uninstall
    some developers build that in, some dont.

    What command will recursively find the stings "tvh" or "tvheadend"?
