See Subject. I use matplotlib, scipy, numpy and possibly one other
module. If I go to the control panel, I only see numpy listed. Why? I
use a search and find only numpy and Python itself. How can matplotlib
and scipy be uninstalled?
I think it should suffice to delete the:
- and scipy (for scipy I don't know if there are more packages)
directories from C:\Python\Lib\site-packages. There is no more the
uninstaller can do. Sometimes the packages also place a RemoveXXX.exe
in the Python toplevel directory, but since it doesn't show up in the
registry, I think this will not work. When your registry is clean, if
I really would like to finally get "rid" of it, I would delete if it
were my own machine.
But I also would not like to "uninstall", but rather "hide", i.e., you
can rename it to some sensible name, e.g. matplotlib ->
matplotlib-10-08-09. Then you can reinstall the library with another
version without interference, and the files are not lost until the
installation is working finally.
Finally, there may be some matplotlib-blahblahblah.egg-info and
scipy-foobar.egg-info files in site-packages, where I don't know what
they do precisely. They are just plain text files, containing
meta-data about the package installed.
