[Kubuntu] Wine removal

The "rc" means that the package has been removed, but the configuration files remain.

You can use "apt-get purge <package>" to remove config files also.

Yo may find that your application menus still list applications which you have installed under wine. To remove these, delete:
Code:

~/.local/share/desktop-directories/wine-Programs*
~/.local/share/applications/wine

Thank you. If I could - I would pass to you a cookie

I can run wine - why?

maybe some package "winelib" or "libwine" is still installed (that exists in debian, and *ubuntu is based on debian)...
or did you maybe install wine otherwise than through apt (like a source package)?

NMY 08-02-2008 05:00 PM

I did "man wine" and I found

/usr/local/bin/wine
The wine program loader.

sorry but the uninstaller is for windows software installed with wine,
did you use any other installation method than the one that comes with kubuntu?

matthewg42 08-02-2008 05:43 PM

If you still have a wine executable installed, you can see what package provides it like this:
Code:

dpkg -S $(which wine)

NMY 08-02-2008 06:02 PM

dpkg -S $(wine-0.9.49)
This did not work.

I installed un uninstalled few wine versions because I wanted to run some game but I did not succeed. I installed with apt-get, I also installed with Adept, I did compile and install older versions, one of them had ./tools/installer script.

All I want is just to remove it correctly.

Thanks

That's not the command I suggest you run. Please follow the instructions more closely.

I didn't get what did you mean by "which wine"

So you did install it from different sources. I'm afraid uninstalling all things from wine will be a bit difficult, but there should be hints included with what you installed. In short, read files like "INSTALL" or "README" that come with the wine editions you have (except the one that comes with ubuntu - you already removed that), I hope there is something about uninstallation.
good luck with this

Any aditional information would be helpful - thanks

matthewg42 08-02-2008 07:14 PM

Just copy-paste into the terminal:
Code:

dpkg -S $(which wine)
"which" is a command that prints the full path of a named command (if it is installed on you system and is in the PATH).

:~$ dpkg -S $(which wine)
dpkg: /usr/local/bin/wine not found.
That's what I get. I'll be trying 'make uninstall'.

matthewg42 08-03-2008 06:19 AM

It looks like wine is installed in /usr/local/... which usually means you have installed it manually - i.e. not with the package management system.

I assume you are familiar with Windows, so I'd like a draw an analogy. Lets say you get an application which is in a .zip file - there is no installer - the zip file just contains containing a .exe file and a few .dlls and data files. You unzip this in C:\myapp\. In this case you would no expect to be able to go to add/remove programs to un-install it - it has not been registered with the OS - you must manually delete it.

The same thing goes for any software which you install on a debian/ubuntu system where you do not use one of th front ends to the package management system (apt-get or aptitude or adept or synaptic and so on).

When you build software from source, it does not use the package management system. Some (but not all) projects provide a "make uninstall" target. If you have this, and remember building and installing with "make install", you should be fine to use it.

If there is no "make uninstall" target, you simply have to go and delete the files for th program. This can be a little fiddly because the file system layout means the files are split over several areas - the binary goes in <prefix>/bin, the libraries go in <prefix>/lib, and so on.

For this reason, when I am building from source, I usually set the <prefix> to be /opt/<applicationname>/

This way, everything gets installed under one directory, and if I want to get rid of it, I just delete that directory. The down-side is that the binary will not be in the PATH, and if there are libraries to load, I sometimes need to set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH. For me this is worth the effort for the clean un-install.
