I uninstalled manually mpi from my machine, but now when I make the command mpirun I get "-bash: /usr/local/bin/mpirun: No such file or directory" rather than "-bash: mpirun: command not found". ps. before uninstalling mpi the mpirun was in the directory /usr/local/bin/

Does some one have an idea what could be the reason?

Looks like a not deleted symlink to a deleted symlink to the deleted binary or something like that. Did you try which mpirun to get to know what you are actually calling?

It could also be hashing issue in the current bash session. In this case issuing the hash -r command or starting a new shell would solve the problem. –  Hristo Iliev Jul 30 '13 at 21:20
