Uninstalling Programs that were installed with Wine?


Hey all,

I'm wondering how you uninstall a windows program that was installed with Wine? Just delete the folder it was installed to? Is there a better way to do it?

Thanks!

You should have a menu item added called "Wine Software Uninstaller" - It will probably be in your Applications->System Tools menu if you are running Gnome.

Use the command "wine uninstaller" for the gui uninstall utility. But really, just deleting the installation folder is fine for most apps. The only effect is that a few entries get left behind in the registry, which usually does no harm.

Oh okay.,, few questions tho:

1) I don't have any GUI for wine in my K Menu (using KDE not Gnome). I can only run Wine from the command line, and it runs in the Konsole only, no GUI.

2) I ran Wine Uninsaller, and the GUI did pop up, but the only program I have installed with Wine, Ares, wasn't there.

So how do I get wine to open in GUI form? and why isn't Ares there to remove?

You can run the wine uninstaller from the command line, with the command:

uninstaller

You can create your own launcher icon if one wasn't created for you.

If the the Windows software wasn't listed in the uninstaller, it didn't use a standard Windows installer. Look in the directory with the software for an uninstall.exe or similar application.
