Open a terminal, navigate to build directory, something like that: /home/user/code/gazebo-1.4/build

Run the command: make uninstall (with required privileges like sudo).

I hope it helps.

Somehow this never did anything for me. I think it said no target called uninstall or something like that.

You must run the command in the folder that you ran the command cmake and make. It works for me.

Daniel is right. You should conserve the build/ directory from where you ran the "make install" in order to be able to uninstall files. Uninstall procedure needs to know some info coming from the moment of installation (like destination), so a clean clone of the repo it is not going to help.

The way I do it is to remove all gazebo files from the /usr/local subdirectories (assuming that is where you installed gazebo) and the .gazebo dir in my home directory.

Hope this helps.
