> Now how do I completely uninstall it after I've built it? From the makefile, it looks like each file either is named or is in a directory named something with "playonlinx" or "PlayOnLinux" as a substring, so that's what we'd need to get rid of.
First lets get rid of our clone of the repository. $ cd path/to/wherever/you/cloned/the/repository $ rm -rf POL-POM-4/ 'rm' means 'remove'. The '-rf' is necessary to remove directories. Next cd into your root (top-level) directory $ cd / and search for all files and directories containing "playonlinux" or "PlayOnLinux" $ sudo find -iname "*playonlinux*" 'sudo' is to avoid getting getting messages of the form "find: *: Permission denied". 'find' is the command we are running. '-iname' says to search filenames and directory names ignoring case ('-name' without the 'i' would make it case-sensitive). "*playonlinux*" is the string we're looking for. The '*' before and after 'playonlinux' means that anything can come before or after 'playonlinux' in the name, as long as 'playonlinux' is in there somewhere. The output should be a bunch of file names and locations. In order to easily delete all of these at once, we're going to turn the whole list of them into a variable: '$(sudo find -iname "*playonlinux*"). To see what this looks like, run $ echo $(sudo find -iname "*playonlinux*") You should see the same files and directories as before, but printed all on one line. Finally, we will remove them all with $ sudo rm -rf $(sudo find -iname "*playonlinux*") Please copy/pase that line exactly so that you don't accidentally remove anything else. Now run $ sudo find -iname "*playonlinux*" again and you'll see that the files are all gone.
