    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.

    Code:
    cd ~
    ls -a
    rm -rf .wine
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    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?

    Thanks,

    There is no difference. f option force the removing if it get permission error.
    Remove these files too :
    Code:
    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
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
