Re: fonts are different and smaller
This has bugged me for years. I love the fonts in Linux just the way they are and I have to tiptoe around installing wine so as not to make my fonts become blocky and nearly unreadable.
I think you need to remove the packages that were automatically installed with wine as dependencies. Luckily, the wonderous package management system remembers which packages were explicitly requested as opposed to packages that were installed as dependencies. This should do the trick...
After that, I think you can
sudo apt-get autoremove
to avoid them being auto-installed with wine.
sudo apt-get install wine
