How did you uninstall the Geany you built? Did you use the `make
uninstall` build system target or manually remove the files?
One thing to check is if you run Geany from the command line, does it
work, and if so, when you use the `-v` option (or from Help->Debug
Messages), look at what the "System data dir" shows as. If it's showing
/usr/local/share then you probably still have Geany in the other
location. If it works properly from the command line but not from the
.desktop launcher/shortcut thing, it may be that the .desktop file
lingers in the `/usr/local/share/applications` directory or something.
In any case, if you get the same version of Geany source you built from
last time, configure it with the same options, you should be able to use
`make uninstall` and it will delete any files that are put there by the
