Thank you for your interest in SU2.
In order to 'uninstall' SU2, all you need to do is delete the executables that were created when you compiled the code, or from wherever you put the download executables.

If you did not specify otherwise, it probably would have been installed in /usr/local/
If the location of the executables is included in your $PATH environment variable, you will be able to find them with 'which SU2_CFD', 'which SU2_...', etc at the command line.

You may also want to see the installation instructions for more detail about the installation process.

To remove the compiled files without deleting the executables, use 'make clean' at the command line in the source code directory. This can be useful if you are compiling the auto-dfferentiated version, or if something went wrong in compilation and you want to be sure not to use the previously compiled files. If you are changing/developing the code and need to recompile frequently, keeping these files can make the compilation faster since some files won't need to be recompiled.
