    Uninstall PlayOnLinux

    Firstly, in order to install iTunes, I installed WINE in my Ubuntu 12.04.
    Since it often makes my system FREEZE, so I give Play-On Linux (POL) a try.
    But the result is the same. So, now I wish to uninstall it.

    And the question is:
    If I do not want for having iTunes and POL in my system, is it means that if I installed POL, it also means that iTunes will be unistalled also. Or I should uninstall them one-by-one?
    Please guide me.

    Ubuntu 12.04
    The iTunes is 7.0.x version

    Simple way for POL would be to uninstall with the software center.

    I have never installed itunes, but you could always do a manual removal. In terminal:

    gksudo nautilus

    And go to your filesystem and do a search for itunes and remove all files.

    Simply open your home folder, press Ctrl+H to show all hidden files, locate the .PlayOnLinux folder and delete it. That'll get rid of all traces of PlayOnLinux on your computer.

    Over kill? hardly ..

    If you don't know what files your dealing with, it an excellent way to find out.
