Uninstalling FontForge

I've never bothered to make this easy.

If you installed in /usr/local (the default) then you type either:

$ su
password:
$ rm -rf /usr/local/bin/{fontforge,sfddiff,fontimage,fontlint} \
/usr/local/lib/{libgdraw,libgunicode,libuninameslist,libspiro,libfontforge,libgutils,libgioftp}* \
/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/fontforge.pc \
/usr/local/man/man1/{fontforge,sfddiff,fontimage,fontlint}.1 \
/usr/local/share/doc/fontforge \
/usr/local/share/fontforge \
/usr/local/share/locale/*/LC_MESSAGES/FontForge.mo \
/usr/local/include/fontforge

or if you are on a mac:

$ sudo rm -rf /usr/local/bin/{fontforge,sfddiff,fontimage,fontlint} \
/usr/local/lib/{libgdraw,libgunicode,libuninameslist,libspiro,libfontforge,libgutils,libgioftp}* \
/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/fontforge.pc \
/usr/local/man/man1/{fontforge,sfddiff,fontimage,fontlint}.1 \
/usr/local/share/doc/fontforge \
/usr/local/share/fontforge \
/usr/local/share/locale/*/LC_MESSAGES/FontForge.mo \
/usr/local/include/fontforge \
/Applications/FontForge.app
password:

or if you are on cygwin:

$ rm -rf /usr/local/bin/{fontforge,sfddiff,fontimage,fontlint} \
/usr/local/lib/{libgdraw,libgunicode,libuninameslist,libspiro,libfontforge,libgutils,libgioftp}* \
/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/fontforge.pc \
/usr/local/man/man1/{fontforge,sfddiff,fontimage,fontlint}.1 \
/usr/local/share/doc/fontforge \
/usr/local/share/fontforge \
/usr/local/share/locale/*/LC_MESSAGES/FontForge.mo \
/usr/local/include/fontforge

If you've installed to a different prefix (/usr perhaps) then simply substitute /usr for /usr/local above.
