Re: [gtk-osx-users] Removing GTK from Mac OSX Mavericks


I did use the default and did not modify the installation.  I appreciate the clarification on the environment 
modifications of Gtk-osx and MacPorts.

Thank you for your help!

remove GTK for Mac OSX to prevent conflicts with MacPorts or other solutions that I may find.

Your suggestion was to delete the ~/gtk directory and sub-directories under it.  I just want to confirm 
that there are no other clean up tasks required.

Gtk-osx doesn't interfere with MacPorts or Fink, they interfere with it by exporting their environments 
into the user's default environment. Gtk-osx doesn't export its environment.

But to completely remove gtk-osx, and assuming that you used the default .jhbuildrc-custom unmodified, do 
the following:

rm -rf ~/gtk
rm -rf ~/Source
rm -rf ~/.local
rm ~/.jhbuild*
rm ~/

ls -d ~/.* and rm -rf any config directories like .gconf and .gnome-2 that might have been created by 
running programs during your unsuccessful build process. Be careful here not to delete anything that isn't 
from gtk.
