Uninstall compiled Qtractor

Hi Rui,
I wanted to uninstall selfcompiled qtractor 0.7.9 for installing the 0.8.0.
I had deleted the original install directory, so I built a new one from the original soures, opened it and did as user...

1. ./configure --prefix=/usr/local
2. make
3. sudo make uninstall

...which all went fine, but the lines...

rmdir /usr/local/share/icons/hicolor/32x32/apps/
rmdir /usr/local/share/appdata/
rmdir /usr/local/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/
rmdir /usr/local/share/mime/packages/
rmdir /usr/local/share/icons/hicolor/32x32/mimetypes/
rmdir /usr/local/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/mimetypes/

...seems strange to me, because these directories seems to be system wide ones and not qtractor specific.

Is that correct?

kind regards,

please note that the rmdir command would effectively remove the directories if and only if they're empty.

as the previous qtractor v0.7.8 probably is/was the only one to populate those directories to date, you'll get them removed all the way and that's just fine. otherwise you get a rmdir warning message that the directory is not empty and you'll go on with your business as usual and no worries :)
