Yes, I know, thank you :-)

Yes, understood :-)

My point was just concerning what I have: A system where removing is not 
all to easy because I did not look at these methods during my first 
install, but just used the default value.
No big problem, really, but I just wanted to ask in case I had missed 
some nice methods for my current situation :-)
Removing a normal installed Scribus (source) is not so easy, but would 
have been if I had used another method. Now I know :-)
