    PlayOnLinux will install every thing under .PlayOnLinux,
    after uninstallting PlayOnLinux from package manager.
    you can delete this /home/user/.PlayOnLinux folder, if its not deleted.
    Never make any misteaks.

    Iam not sure, but look at these folders :

    /home/xxx/.wine

    or in root use

    /root/.wine


    maybe u have to kill them too...only if they are there

    Never ever run wine as root X_X, so there should not be .wine in /root.

    That would remove the whole Wine, wine binaries too, Its not necessary to remove wine to use PlayOnLinux

    The other thing is are you sure that its the actual file or is it just an icon? I know that when I uninstall things I have to right click applications and manually remove the item from the list despite it being uninstalled

    On my University all Notebooks ship with linux...the most useres hate sudos etc...
    My Computer, My decision what to do, where to write, what to edit...

    Its Ubuntuuser Problems, they hate root users "they kick the system behind the sudo . admin etc."
    Year 2009, and using a console for editing system files, like in 2000 when X Desktop was a grey spot...

    Nevertheless, good for multiuser Pcs...But iam the Administrator, and the whoe HDD is MINE, HAHAHAHA

    O Rly?
    Then why do you even use Ubuntu, which is a potentially desktop distro, use LFS and get your own solution, then you don't have to blame Ubuntu developers

    I Like it easy and userfrindly...

    But sorry, a pc where i cant use everything simply by a click...its not my intention of a simple system...

    Blaming ?! guy...come down..next linux fanatic " Linux is free " so let me be free in using my desktop for what i want... if i want a system which is restriceted everywhere in every point, i might use windows after 10 years again... advantage : it isnt nerving myself with shell prompts etc

    no, to stay serious : i have set up my whole family to linux, and its really an migration problem with this "only stay in ur home folder"...or getting a call, this or that isnt working, to tell them : go in cosole and type "sudo bla bla bla..."

    Sorry thats not my kinf of work with a computer... like mentioned before... ive never had problems with root, and using ubuntu since version 5.XX
