Umm, Let's say I want to delete a program that had an independent installer, like Enemy Territory. Would it be safe to go and "gksudo nautilus" to it's install directory and manually delete it? Also, I have this folder in my trash but it'll never get deleted because I've 'insufficient privileges.' How do I deal with that?

Thanks in advance.

To delete the file in trash open nautilus as a root (gksu nautilus), go to trash and you will be able to delete it.
How did you installed the game?With wine?

Enemy Territory came with an install .bin (FileFront website), so I used that. Thanks again.
