            Bug ID: 4061
           Summary: --prefix configure option doesn't work correctly on
                    'make uninistall'
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: GIT
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P3
         Component: Other
          Assignee: users at lists.claws-mail.org
          Reporter: removed-gdpr at example.com


cd /tmp
rm -rf claws
git clone git://git.claws-mail.org/claws.git
cd /tmp/claws

█ Note the --prefix value:

./configure \
    --build=$(uname -m)-suse-linux-gnu \
    --prefix=/usr \
    --disable-jpilot \
    --disable-maintainer-mode \
    --disables-manual \
    --disable-static \
    --enable-bogofilter-plugin \
    --enable-crash-dialog \
    --enable-enchant \
    --enable-gnutls \
    --enable-ldap \
    --enable-pgpmime-plugin \
    --enable-silent-rules \
    --enable-spamassassin-plugin \
    --disable-dillo-plugin \

su -
cd /tmp/claws
make install
make uninistall

█ Note: the output shows many attempts to remove files from '/usr/local'
instead of '/usr' as specified in the --prefix above

which claws-mail


which: no claws-mail in



Additionally directories like /usr/lib64/claws-mail/plugins/ remain. (I don't
know which others too since I am not familiar with the whole tree structure)
