OpenSUSE :: Wine - Remove Menu Entries After Uninstalling Programs?

May 26, 2011

The only MS program I need on my computer is Word 2007 for the equation editor to write/edit files from work. So after installing Wine I installed MSOffice2007. Excel worked OK (although I don't need it - I am perfectly happy with the Libre Office spreadsheet). Word however froze each time so I tried to uninstall and reinstall it. However I always got an error message when trying to uninstall with Wine. So I followed the advice of some strands in this forum and deleted the Program Files folder from the directory. However the menus are still in Wine/Programs/Microsoft Office even though they lead to nowhere. I tried to reinstall but still I nothing happened. I presume the old entries still lead to the position where previously the .exe files were located. Now my question is either how can I remove these menu entries and try installing again - or even better - is there a Linux programme that can read/edit the equations written in Word 2007?

Ubuntu :: Can't Remove Extra Entries From GRUB 2 Menu?

Jun 6, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 dual booted with Windows XP. Ever since I installed 9.10, I get a long list of OS's (actually, multiple repeats of what appears to be the same Ubuntu install), and I can't get rid of them.I've looked through various tutorials and the GRUB 2 Community documentation ( but I still can't get rid of the menu items.I edited the 40_custom file and was able to add the entries I wanted to see, and then chmoded 644 all the other files in the /etc/grub.d directory and run update-grub.The custom entries do appear at the end of the menu now, but the old entries are still there as well. This is what I get when I run the update-grub:

yoodle@HANSOLO:/etc/grub.d$ sudo update-grub
Searching for GRUB installation directory ... found: /boot/grub

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Uninstalling Wine

Jun 22, 2010

I'm running opensuse 11.2 since a few days. I installed wine to play some game. Originally I tried with the default version but since it didn't work I have installed a newer version from winehq website (just the same, an rpm package, supposedly for suse). In the mean time had a lot of stuff installed, like winetricks, or wine-doors, and the necessary wine software like directx or microsoft fonts.

After a couple of days the game is not working anymore so I have tried to remove everything and start from scratch. The problem is I can't remove wine. If I remove wine the dependency will say, it will remove package 'wine' and install 'wine-snapshot'. If I uninstall wine-snapshot it installs wine. And so on.

I'd just like to remove everything related so i can check and eventually manually delete rest of wine-related stuff to make sure it's all clean... reinstalling the game didn't help so I figured that wine is broken somehow.

Ubuntu :: Wine Programs Menu Missing?

Oct 15, 2010

I'm currently using Ubuntu 10.10 and the version of Wine in the standard repository. In the past, when I've installed wine, it automatically gave me a Programs menu from which I could launch all the Windows programs I installed. That menu is now missing.I tried uninstalling Wine, removing the ~/.wine folder, and removing all references to wine and wine programs in ~/.local/share... with no effect.can't get the Programs menu to come back.

General :: Using Wine / Acer Aspire One Linpus Lite - Add / Remove Programs?

Jan 4, 2010

I'm trying to use iTunes and poker sites on my acer aspire one with linux linpus lite. I've followed previous threads and learned how to add/remove programs and I've downloaded wine. My wine programs show up under 'other' and I have: wine configuration; wine file; wine boot; wine software ininstaller and winhelp (not sure if the last is wine or not) Just can't navigate my way through any of these to find how to actually RUN wine. Also, if you think this is not the best way to fully use poker websites (I'm not happy with the iphone style no download play) or iTunes.

OpenSUSE Install :: Remove Whole Partitions Entries?

Oct 15, 2010

I have to hide Unix partitions to succeed in installing Linux and the winner is Ubuntu 10.10! I had to remove whole partitions entries. DOS based primary/logical partitions are now called (hd0,msdos1), (hd0,msdos2), etc. And BSD slices would have been (hd0, bsd1) (hd0,bsd2). I guess I saw those names during installation. update-grub failed in three attempts in a row on 2 machines (32 and 64 bit). Everything went fine after I removed the Unix partitions (which are going to be restored by openSUSE legacy Grub)

OpenSUSE :: Wine Not Opening Some Windows Programs?

Jun 17, 2011

Some windows programs won't run after I have installed them with Wine. They either won't run or they make the screen go to a black painting screen (screen goes black and you can paint over it with your mouse to make the desktop reappear). I have tried changing the windows version and made no difference. I have even tried opening it in a virtual window and made no difference (Window opens then closes)

Ubuntu :: Lucid Programs Uninstalling Themselves

Jul 20, 2010

I've been downloading some programs in Synaptic and adding PPA like it's Christmas, and two days ago noticed one of my wine games disappeared just like that, from the C Drive folder. Didn't think much about it and just copied it back in (I had a backup on a different partition). Also later that day wine disappeared and needed reinstalling.Now yesterday I decided to upgrade OpenOffice to 3.2.1 and went through the "tutorial" and uninstalled all the associated packages and installed the newer version. Gwenview and Gedit disappeared as well, needing a reinstall.

Now I log on today and Pidgin and Thunderbird are gone.I'm really not sure what could be going on, I mean it all seems unrelated. Why would reinstalling OpenOffice mess up everything else?So this is more of a nuisance than a problem, because when I reinstall the programs the settings are as I left them.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 - How To Use Terminal To Add / Remove Programs

Mar 15, 2011

I am coming from Kubuntu 10.10, which is a Debian based OS. I am used to going into the terminal and typing sudo apt-get install or sudo apt-get remove to install and remove programs. I know it is the hard way to do it, but I find it gave me more flexibility. So how do I do this in openSUSE 11.3? Or can I even install things through terminal? What is the command? I know there is YaST but I also want to learn how to use the terminal

Debian :: Can't Remove Wine - Apt-get Bricked - Could Not Perform Immediate Configuration On 'wine-unstable'

Feb 16, 2011

while trying to get a game to work on wine I was surprised to find out that the wine version that ships with sid is 1.0.1 released in October 2005. So I installed the latest release I found at [URL] like this :

dpkg -i wine_1.1.42~winehq1-1_amd64.deb

The install failed, I think because I hadn't remove the old wine version, and that's when the joy-ride started. Impossible to remove wine to restart properly. (apt-get remove libwine wine and apt-get -f install didn't) After some googling I tried this :

dpkg -i --force-depends wine_1.1.42~winehq1-1_amd64.deb

This did install the wine version I wanted, and the game ran fine after that. However the result was a borked apt-get. Tried to remove wine again with the above commands, resulting in apt-get failing to do so because it tried installing wine-unstable and reported errors similar to these : E: Could not perform immediate configuration on 'wine-unstable'. see man 5 apt.conf under APT::Immediate-Configure for details.

Fedora :: Remove Wine And Wine Installed Program?

Nov 19, 2010

I am new to fedora and installed wine to see if I could get the sony reader software working (required to access sony bookstore from my sony ereader). Well the program did not work though it did create icons on my desktop. wine kept crashing and I said lets just get rid of it. I uninstalled wine via yum remove and nothing appeared to happen so I did rpm -qa |grep wine and saw lots of stuff. So I simply did yum remove wine* and then a rpm -qa |grep wine was empty. however wine is still under applications on my desktop and still has a category for programs--reader. I should also mention that while wine was installed I attempted to remove the reader via the wine uninstalller but a) wine gave a message of a core crash and b) all the uninstaller did was give me the option to reinstall the reader program. so now when I attempt to open an epub it tries with the sony reader software. I know I can just right click to use another program but for now I want wine gone completely from my pc and the sony program gone.

Ubuntu :: Uninstalling Windows 7 - Remove Wubi?

Jun 8, 2010

I have been using Ubuntu Wubi for a few weeks now and am quite happy with it, and I am not missing Windows 7. This is not my first contact with Linux OS. In fact I have tinkled with Red Hat, SuSe and Fedora quite a few years back but never pursued them seriously as I found them difficult to use. Many people seem to be saying that "if you want to uninstall Ubuntu, just go to Windows Control Panel and uninstall Wubi like you would any other application and it will remove Wubi " But what if I wanted to uninstall Windows 7 and leave Ubuntu on the hard disk? Would I need to start from square one and re-install Ubuntu again?
