I'm on Linux (Centos 7), I installed LibreOffice from source (download, ./configure, make, make install) and want to uninstall it. "make uninstall" does not work. What are my options ?

Remove the LibreOffice folder manually. (There is no make uninstall in the LibreOffice makefile)

Many GNU/Linux distros recommend against installing packages with make install as programs installed that way can't be removed or updated by the package manager.
