Office 2007 - How to completely erase Wine and components to start from scratch?
I used this howto: Howto: Office 2007 on Linux with Wine
This worked perfect on one of my computers, but I may have missed a step on my second computer. Both running Ubuntu 8.10 with Wine 1.1.10 and Crossover Games (crossover-games-demo_7.1.0-1_i386.deb)
I've tried uninstalling wine and then re-doing everything on this page, and Office 2007 starts and errors out right away. I do not even get to enter a serial number.
How do I just delete everything and start from the beginning?
Thanks for any help..

Hi and Welcome !
Un-install wine using Synaptic Package Manager and delete .wine folder from your /home/user_id folder.
cd ~ ls -a rm -rf .wine

Thanks for responding,
I did perform this after uninstalling it from synaptic, only I used 'rm -r ~/.wine/'
Is there a difference between just -r as opposed to -rf as you suggested?

There is no difference. f option force the removing if it get permission error.
Remove these files too :
rm -f $HOME/.config/menus/applications-merged/wine* rm -rf $HOME/.local/share/applications/wine rm -f $HOME/.local/share/desktop-directories/wine* rm -f $HOME/.local/share/icons/????_*.xpm

I think this is enough .....
I do agree with you. Those are the most effective way
