Uninstalling

To remove the version above from your computer do:

cd /usr/local
# see which files will be deleted:
wget -O- http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2465545/gmsh-2.5.0-Linux.tar.gz | tar -tzf - 
# or directly delete the contents from /usr/local using this command:
wget -O- http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2465545/gmsh-2.5.0-Linux.tar.gz | tar -tzf - | sudo rm -rf
