    I've made a terrible mistake. Wine/PoL

    I was rebuilding my Ubuntu after a lovely HDD gouged a tear in itself. So a few days passed; everything was reinstalled and I was already working on a new project... I figured I'd install wine and playonlinux to listen to spotify. Why? I honestly have no idea... So my insipid self decided I would install them back asswards manually via terminal going with playonlinux first. So now 1.4 Wine won't install... What do? How do I fix this?


    ~Thanks in advance.

    I would, but like I said I tried to do a manual install...

    Since it didn't have wine 1.4 or 1.5 it only half-installed... It is in some sort of "Limbo" state. I forgot to add that part. I figured I wasn't the only stupid person here and that people have done this frequently by accident.

    The software manager won't recognize it as playonlinux.

    I guess I whould be asking, "Where are the files located?" :S

    Sorry I guess I am not being very helpful. I believe the purge command might work. The files may be in your Home folder under Hidden files/folders (if you go to Home and use CTL + H buttons that should reveal hidden folders)

    IF you install something from source, using a script, there is often an uninstall script you can run, as well.
