Issues with custom built glib
I want to uninstall the built glib and use ubuntu's version. But unfortunately I deleted the source folder where I built it. So I now have the tarball of the source.
When I do a make uninstall on the extracted source, it gets uninstalled but gdm doesn't start till i do a 'make install' again. I want to use the version of glib shipped with ubuntu. How to do it?

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
The system probably thinks you still have the old glib installed since you built from source and likely did not remove it using the package manager, otherwise all dependent things would have been nuked as well (goodby desktop). You need to force it to install glib again. You can do this from the command line with (I think): apt-get --reinstall install glibSometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
