hello ubuntu forum go'ers.

i recently installed warcraft iii using wine under ubuntu 7.10 gutsy gibbon. problem is, i don't have video card drivers so it's pointless to try playing. was wondering how i go about uninstalling the game? the wine "uninstaller" doesn't give me the option to uninstall (in fact the list is empty).

please help a linux noob out :).

i used the search function i swear!!! but i am prepared to be flamed.

thanks and have a nice day. :popcorn:

you could just delete the wine folder that contains warcraft 3 in /home/<username>/.wine/drive_c/program files/<game file> thats one of the easyest ways to do that

Also, if you look inside the folder fedex1993 mentioned, you can probably find an uninstall.exe that may do the trick.

how do i "look" through these folders?

so far i have been going to terminal typing in winefile. i deleted the WC3 directory through there (thanks!)... since running uninstall.exe gave me an error.

Wine has a registry editor comparable to Windows. Just type "wine regedit" and it should get you started.

wine provides an uninstaller similar to Remove programs in windows
just type 'uninstaller' in a shell prompt and follow the instructions
