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.

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)

Software :: Invisible Windows In Wine - Programs Never Appear

Aug 10, 2010

I finally got around to installing Linux on my laptop the other day, and I'm trying to use Wine to run some windows apps. Problem is, my programs never appear. They DO start - I can see them in 'ps -e' as well as Gnome System Monitor. Yet the window never appears. It's not just one program either; first I tried running Steam from the terminal and I can tell that it successfully launches. The window just doesn't get drawn. All other windows become unfocused when it launches and I'm even able to type in my password to log in (I know this because after I hit enter the "Steam Login" entry disappears from the taskbar and the "Steam" entry appears in it's place) but no Steam related windows ever appear.

The second program I've been trying to emulate is EVE Online. Similar thing happens: The EVE splash screen DOES appear, along with it's entry in the taskbar, but when it closes, the EVE client never becomes visible - no taskbar entry this time either. Again, I can see it running in ps -e or System Monitor, and one of my CPUs cores becomes maxed out, so I know it's running. Also, I just noticed that I can right click Steam's invisible entry in the tray and bring up the context menu, but nothing more than that. I've heard of fonts being invisible/incorrect under Wine, but not the entire program! I've googled and tried running things in compatibility mode for various versions of windows, but have had no progress. What am I missing?

Debian Lenny
Wine 1.0.1-174-gc4039bd
Gnome (with and without Compiz)
1.66GHz Dual Core CPU

OpenSUSE :: After Applying The Latest Wine Update Mouse Cursor In Wine Windows Is Now Purple/magenta/pink

Oct 19, 2009

I don't know if it's just my system, but after applying the latest Wine update, the mouse cursor in Wine windows is now purple/magenta/pink, whatever. Not a big problem, just annoying. I've looked through the various config files in ~home and /usr/share/wine, and can't find any parameter that might even remotely address this.

Ubuntu :: How To Fully Uninstall WINE

Sep 25, 2010

I was using WINE and MS Office 2007 properly when suddenly one day MS Office stopped working properly. When saving a file, the application would crash. I decided to uninstall MS Office and to reinstall it. I wasn't able to reinstall it, the installer crashed.I then uninstalled WINE, and erased the .wine directory. I reinstalled WINE and tried to install MS Office. Same problem, the installer crashed. It's a pain not to have MS Office on this computer.What could I do to remove WINE entirely and to start over with a new clean WINE install with MS Office?

Ubuntu :: How To Uninstall Non-repository WINE

Mar 2, 2011

Currently, WINE stable is v1.22. Several months ago, I installed WINE 1.01 from the command line while following a forgotten instruction online. It does not show up in Ubuntu Software Center, so it did not update through the repositories. I've since added WINE to the repositories, but when I try to install v1.22, the installer finds v1.01, says it could be a problem, but only allows "cancel" and "install anyway" as options.

How do uninstall the old (v1.01) WINE from Ubuntu? Is it as easy as deleting the .wine folder from my home folder? How do I remove WINE from the Application menu?

Slackware :: How To Uninstall Wine

Jun 8, 2010

I install wine with this as regular user:

Then to uninstall I do this as root:

Now if I try to install again it say this:


Warning ! wine binary (still) found, which may indicate a (conflicting) previous installation. You might want to abort and uninstall Wine first. (If you previously tried to install from source manually, run 'make uninstall' from the wine root directory)

We need to install Wine as the root user. Do you want us to build Wine, 'su root' and install Wine?

Enter 'no' to build Wine without installing:

Why it say conflicting previous installation? "make uninstall" not work?

General :: Install/Uninstall ITunes With WINE

Sep 1, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my husband's laptop. He insists that I install iTunes. Wine comes with the 10.04 release. I downloaded iTunes and it appeared to install ok. It said it was successful. However, immediately upon the 'installation successful' notification, another window popped up that said, "iTunes was not installed correctly. Please reinstall iTunes. Error 7 (Windows error 126).

Whenever I try to open iTunes, this error message pops up. I used the WINE uninstall option for iTunes, however, the window pops up giving the option to either repair or uninstall, and when I click uninstall it appears to go through the process and even says it did - only to discover the fine print telling me that it "installed" the program sucessfully. This is very frustrating. I cannot seem to get the program to uninstall.

I found a thread that said to delete the files manually, but I don't know how to do this. I need to uninstall iTunes and reinstall it and make it work.

Ubuntu :: WINE Won't Install Any Other Programs?

May 31, 2010

I installed WINE to get some old games to work on my Ubuntu box. (Return to Castle Wolfenstein)I tried downloading some demos and it says BLOCKED: WINE START UNIX and to read the executable bit. I did, and it says it will NOT install any programs downloaded from the internet. I thought 'fine, I guess they have to be retail games' so I popped the disk in and it tells me the same thing. Any exe program I EVER try to install from anywhere is just BLOCKED: WINE START UNIX. Why is this happening?

This is really irritating me, becuase if i got an error message i could try to figure out whats wrong, but when NOTHING AT ALL happens
