i was testing and installed Ubuntu TV via instructions which can be found here.

But how do I remove it? make uninstall doesn't work and I am stuck. It is not my productivity machine, but would be nice to know for learning

According to the CMake documentation, you have two options:

  1. Change the uninstall target at the end of CMakeLists.txt. It appears that the target in the existing code may be incorrect, and should read as follows:
       COMMAND ${CMAKE_COMMAND} -P ${CMAKE_CURRENT_BINARY_DIR}/cmake_uninstall.cmake)
  1. Run the command xargs rm < install_manifest.txt. This removes all of the installed files, but circumvents the make process.
