Can't uninstall wxPython

    I have two versions of wxPython installed on my Mac (OS X Tiger). One
    is version 2.6.1.0 and the other is version 2.6.0.0. I want to keep
    the newer version, but I can't seem to uninstall either one using the
    uninstall_wxPython.py script.

    When I run that script, I get this error message:
    $ sudo: uninstall_wxPython.py: command not found

    Is there any way I could delete one, or both, of these installations
    manually? For some reason, whenever I try to run a wxPython script, it
    uses the older version of wxPython and it doesn't always run correctly.

    Thanks in advance.

    If it has the x bit set you will have to do something like this:

    sudo ./uninstall_wxPython.py

    Otherwise pass "python" explicitly:

    sudo python uninstall_wxPython.py

    I think that it is going to wipe out all your wxPython installs...so
    you will need to reinstall the version you wanted.

    HTH,
