Question Wine disinstallation problem (peviously installed from source) on Ubuntu 7.10

I'm pretty new at linux, so I had the needing to install some windows exe file to feel more "at home". I had a fully working version of wine (.93) when I decided to install a newer one, done by someone on the net.
Some problems compiling it from source, but after a few tries i got my copy of wine installed.
Now my problem is that this version of wine is not working and i need to reinstall the previous one (.93).
What I did is that:

.Via Synaptic I disinstalled my .93 version of wine
.Via make uninstall I disinstalled my "sources".

Then i tried to install wine from synaptic, but what i got is a non-working version of wine, id est.

Have you got any suggestion for me?

Thank you,
Greetings Luke

I would first try to remove the Wine trough apt, along with all of it's configuration files:
apt-get remove --purge wine
Then add the reposity from wineHQ and reinstall Wine with apt or Synaptic (instructions there - basically copy+paste two commands). If it still doesn't work, you should maybe post some error messages here to give a better picture of what's happening..

I have seen only one Wine installation so far that doesn't run anything except for winecfg, and removing/purging/reinstalling it doesn't seem to help at all. So it is possible that the reason is more complex than just some configuration file..


from, source, ubuntu, wine
