uninstalling Wine, or just getting it to work!!!
Ok, so I'm pretty new to the world of linux and such, but I thought I'd give it a try. I installed Ubuntu 6.06 to a test laptop and I liked it.
I tried installing Wine to the laptop and it seemed to install just fine. However, whenever I try to install a windows program by typing into terminal wine someprogram.exe, it doesn't work. Am I doing something wrong? If not, can somebody tell me how to uninstall it? I installed it through the synaptics package manager, using the method described in the Ubuntu distribution instructions. I added the WineHQ APT Repository through terminal, then used the synaptics package manager to install. All of the uninstallation threads I found were for those who used RPM to install it.
If that sounded really noobish, then sorry. I just figured out how to use terminal and I don't know what half of these things are.
Basically I'm trying to get the shockwave player to install on my linux machine, since wonderful Adobe doesn't have a linux version of it.
