This question already has an answer here:

I installed winamp 5.6 under wine in ubuntu. Now I have a winamp icon in the desktop, winamp menu entries under the wine menu in the "Application" menu, but worse of all: in nautilus some files (*.mp3 files) are associated with winamp.

This seems to be because ubuntu is trying to "better integrate wine". Here are some specs which all seem to be outdated:

How can I disable this integration?

  • File associations should never be set outside of wine.
  • Menu entries should never be created outside of wine.
  • Icons should never be created outside of wine.
  • Basically what goes in wine should stay in wine.

Using ubuntu lucid.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

My guess is that you would need to remove (purge) wine from the ubuntu repositories and download wine from winehq

You could try the ubuntu-wine ppa

See How to correctly remove items from Wine Programs menu?

For your other items, you would need to file a bug report against wine on launchpad.
