how to uninstall veyon after installing with make install
I'm using Zorin OS 16.1 Education (ubuntu distro based) on a core 2 duo (old machines used at school).
I wanted to get started with veyon on the client computer but when I use the installer in the software store included in the os, the veyon version is not the latest one and when In install the veyon configurator, I'm unable to get the the service started.
I then tried to install veyon from the download on the website but master gets also installed but I only needed configurator to get the service started on the client. so I remove that install. (the service did started with the latest package from the site)
I then tried, without knowning much of what I was doing, to install veyon using make install as shown here: https://github.com/veyon/veyon/ > veyon on linux and it did install both configuration and master but it won't open either with an error stating that the program won't run due to previledges now, I'm not able to uninstall it
any help is appreciate it I really want to try this out on 14 machines.

On Zorin OS you should be able to use our Ubuntu PPAs so there's no need to build and install Veyon manually. Even after installing the veyon package, you can simply remove
If you performed a manual build and installation, you can remove the corresponding files in
/usr/(local/)bin/veyon*and the veyon directory
/usr/(local)lib/*/veyon. You can also install the DEB and remove it again which should remove the files as well (unless you installed in /usr/local).
