    uninstall ie4linux

    Hello I have installed wine and ie4linux and now want to remove it all as I have found a way to surf the site I need through firefox. I use Gutsy Gibbon. I went to this web page

    and followed these instructions

    1. Make sure you login your Ubuntu Linux with normal user. Don't login as root. Sometime IE4Linux won't come out or launching when you login as root after install.
    2. Open your terminal
    3. Open /etc/apt/sources.list with command. For this case I use gedit. Please use your favorite editor for easy editing. For example Vi editor, Nano editor etc.
    sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    4. Uncomment (or add) following lines:
    deb gutsy universe
    5. Add this line:
    deb gutsy main
    6. Close gedit. Update and install wine and cabextract:
    wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add -
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install wine cabextract
    7. Download IEs 4 Linux and install
    tar zxvf ies4linux-latest.tar.gz
    cd ies4linux-*
    I have looked through web pages and on the forum and all I have found is how to uninstall wine.

    I think it has a folder inside your home folder, i dont use it but there is a start for you at least.

    remember kiddies: sudo rm -rf= BAD!, if someone tells you to do this, please ignore them unless YOU WANT YOUR SYSTEM WIPED

    I'm pretty sure it just has things in it's fodler in your home folder, but other than that I think it only isntalls stuf on your wine drive. Uninstalling it through wine amd removign the fodler should work.

    There are a couple of folders in your /home that it installs

    bin - check inside that there is only and ie file

    in .wine check in /drive_c/Program Files for Internet Explorer

    if you can't uninstall with uninstall script - delete the folders

    If you were a normal user during installation everything should be under:


    and here one file just to start ie6, you need to delete that too:

    please replace user above with your user name

    if you used root to install it then it should be under:


    and here one file just to start ie6, you need to delete that too:

    Thank you
