Hello,

I've installed Wine long time ago. but i had to update it to instal a Program (a friend of me said that i could only install that program with the last version of wine). but I couldn't update it. then I found something on a website to update it. i've done that, but now there is something wrong with my wine. I can't install or open programs anymore with wine (my wine isn't installed anymore :O.

So i tried to reinstall it, but I can't install it anymore. so I went to /usr/share to delete the map Wine, but I'm not allowed to do it.. so i was trying it in Terminal. but I think that I use the wrong Terminal Code.

any ideas?

Wrong code to uninstall wine? Can 't you just type the following in a terminal:

sudo apt-get remove --purge wine

This will completely remove your wine installation and then:

sudo apt-get install wine

This will re-install.

Good luck!

ps. There is a special wine support section on this forum!

Hello,

I use a Dutch Version of Ubuntu. this is the result:

brecht@brecht-laptop:~$ sudo apt-get remove --purge wine
Á[sudo] password for brecht:

Sommige pakketten konden niet ge´nstalleerd worden. Dit kan betekenen dat u

De volgende informatie helpt u mogelijk verder:

just to say, Wine isn't installed anymore.. but it was before all this, but I can't instal wine again. that's the problem.. i was thinking about deleting the map Wine, that map is still in /usr/share

Then I would recommend that you check Wine support forum before doing that. Maybe there's a better solution.

I actually could translate part of the text since I speak German. They're both indeed very similar.

yes I was looking to set my Ubuntu to english to copy paste the english version of that text in here, but I can't find the language settings.

however, thanks for your responds, i'll make a thread on the Wine forum.
