open synaptic, search for "wine" and completly delete (right click) all related wine packages. This will remove entries menu and symlinks. Then into nautilus, the hidden .wine folder should be gone, if not, manually delete it.

rm -rf $HOME/.wine && rm -f $HOME/.config/menus/applications-merged/wine* && rm -rf $HOME/.local/share/applications/wine && rm -f $HOME/.local/share/desktop-directories/wine* && rm -f $HOME/.local/share/icons/????_*.{xpm,png} && rm -f $HOME/.local/share/icons/*-x-wine-*.{xpm,png} && rm -f $HOME/.local/share/applications/wine-extension* && rm -r $HOME/.cache/winetricks

rm -rf $HOME/.wine && rm -f $HOME/.config/menus/applications-merged/wine* && rm -rf $HOME/.local/share/applications/wine && rm -f $HOME/.local/share/desktop-directories/wine* && rm -f $HOME/.local/share/icons/????_*.{xpm,png} && rm -f $HOME/.local/share/icons/*-x-wine-*.{xpm,png} && rm -f $HOME/.local/share/applications/wine-extension* && rm -r $HOME/.cache/winetricks

this is what i get after copy paste exactly what you said

rm: cannot remove `/home/moeen/.cache/winetricks': No such file or directory

should i change something?

I recently had a similar situation. My solution was to use Places/search for files to locate all wine files and then to manually change ownership from root to myself and finally to remove the file.

I used sudo chown myname: filename
and rm filename.

Sina_RJ you only got that message because you didn't use winetricks, you can just ignore it.
