after installing wine I can't run any 3d games properly, I want to get rid of wine so i can play my regular linux games. Any other suggestions on how to fix my problem are welcome.

I would recommend trying this:



sudo apt-get --purge remove wine


Then navigate to your ~/ and delete the .wine directory.

Terminal says "package wine is not installed" if this matters I installed it on 64 bit Ubuntu using a guide I found on these forums.

How did you install it? If it's an RPM you could just rpm -e <package name>. But the package name is the actual name of the package, with numbers and whatnot. Or if you did it through Synaptic, you could just uncheck it. I'm assuming you used a command of some sort?

EDIT:
If you used dpkg, you could type :
dpkg -r <package name>
Again, the package name has all the crazy numbers and stuff in it.

I used this command "sudo dpkg --force-architecture -i wine_0.9.19~winehq1~ubuntu~6.06-2_i386.deb" to install it

Can you tell me exactly what to type? I keep getting errors, the filename is wine_0.9.20~winehq0~ubuntu~6.06-1_i386.deb

Try:



sudo dpkg -r wine_0.9.19~winehq1~ubuntu~6.06-2_i386.deb


EDIT:

One more thing, though, make sure when you type:



dpkg -l|grep wine


the packages listed match the syntax with what you're trying to remove.

sorry i forgot to fix the command, i had to change it to match the file's actual name, the guide i used to install was outdated

I tried that command and changed it to my file's name and it terminal tells me "dpkg: you must specify packages by their own names, not by quoting the names of the files they come in" and lists these options for me
"Type dpkg --help for help about installing and deinstalling packages ;
Use `dselect' or `aptitude' for user-friendly package management;
Type dpkg -Dhelp for a list of dpkg debug flag values;
Type dpkg --force-help for a list of forcing options;
Type dpkg-deb --help for help about manipulating *.deb files;
Type dpkg --licence for copyright licence and lack of warranty (GNU GPL) ."

Yeah, I just typed dpkg -l|grep wine for myself, and I get :



ii wine 0.9.20~winehq0~ubuntu~6.06-1 Microsoft Windows Compatibility Layer (Binar


So I would type:



sudo dpkg -r 0.9.20~winehq0~ubuntu~6.06-1


EDIT:


Actually....
I'm a retard, try:



sudo dpkg -r wine


KISS, right? ;)

No problem, I've been uninstalling/reinstalling various packages all day, so at least I can offer my help on something. Glad to hear you got everything working well. Cheers.

Awesome! My stupid wine install that I managed to FUBAR pretty badly this morning, is now gone, and I can start fresh. Thank you!

I realised I have one more question. Since I want to start over completely with Wine, do I need to manually remove all the folders and files that were left behind (I can see them in the file browser), and how do I do that? Just delete them, or is that a bad thing to do?

Thanks again,
Mimsy

The .wine folder in your home folder? Yup, I'd recommened deleting this one to start over.
