Pip uninstall error

Problem

I had installed a package using Pip. However, when I tried to uninstall it, I got this error:

$ sudo pip uninstall h5py
Can't uninstall 'h5py'. No files were found to uninstall.

Solution

Since I could not discover the real reason for this error, I resorted to finding the deleting the installed directory for this package. I found the directory h5py-2.6.0-py2.7.egg-info under /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages and deleted that.

Tried with: Ubuntu 14.04
