python setup.py uninstall

Sometimes you need to install a software with “python setup.py install“. However, if you want to get rid of it, there is no “python setup.py uninstall” or “python setup.py remove”. Stupid, but true.

I found the solution here. In short:

# install:
$ (sudo) python setup.py install

# uninstall:
# then remove with pip:
$ (sudo) pip uninstall PACKAGE_NAME
