I was trying to install iTunes using wine and I only got as far a QuickTime installing. iTunes refused though so I gave up and ran the uninstall for QuickTime. However it never uninstalls, it just says that it does but it is still in the program folder in wine. Anyone have a suggestion on how I can get rid of it??

Excerpt from Ubuntu Wiki:


Open up a terminal window and type "uninstaller" - this will open up a program similar to Windows' "add/remove programs" control panel, allowing you to uninstall applications from a Wine installation. Running uninstall programs directly via Wine should also work normally. Alternatively, you could also simply delete the folder of the application. However, as when done in Windows, this method will be "unclean" and will not remove the program's configuration from the Wine registry like using an uninstaller will.

Also delete it from menu edit.

I tried the uninstall in the terminal command and this came up in the terminal.
fixme:msi:MsiSourceListGetInfoW Unhandled context 4
fixme:msi:MsiSourceListGetInfoW Unhandled context 4
fixme:msi:MSI_OpenDatabaseW open failed r = 80030050 for L"C:\\windows\\temp\\msie68b.tmp"

Or you could go to the C drive and just delete the program from the Program File's directory. :) Not the best solution, but it works.

Just do what Gannon said. wine programs are only stored in their directory.
Delete it from the .wine directory in your Home, and delete its entry in Edit Menus
