Manually edit .local/share/applications/mimeapps.list and remove any lines with wine. I noticed that installing a package may add lines to the file, but uninstalling it will not update this file. It would be too risky, I guess. Also, cd to ~/.local/share/mime, and remove all occurrences of wine: find and delete lots of files called x-wine..., and remove ...

This is because the development version of Wine is not in the vanilla repository (for obvious reason — it is unstable), you have to add its PPA. Quoting the original page: Add the repository: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:wine/wine-builds Update packages list: sudo apt-get update Then install (example for the development branch): sudo ...

Left 4 Dead 2 is out for Linux on steam? The native version performs really well, and is far easier to use than to try to use the windows version in wine.

Will Wine be just fine? Depending on the software you want to run, sometimes you as well need the package winetricks Check the wine documentation for the game: https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=10546 There seem to be two basic ways of getting things to work. With steam and without steam. For the steam-version there ...

@Zacharee1 (SOLVED) thankyou very much for taking the time to explain. ofcourse! i don't know why i haven't thought about its dependencies but then again i still don't fully understand why packages(dependencies) like for example: (languagepackages) kde-l10n's ,or calligra-l10n etc. have to do anything with WINE, removing WINE or Wine's repository ? ...

These are installed automatically, the only reaction from the user being to confirm the install for the base package. The packages you see marked for removal are these dependencies. The ppa-purge command deletes the specified repository (WINE's in this case), any ...

Where Wine launchers are stored Since Wine applications are installed inside ~/.Wine (locally), Wine launchers are also created locally by definition, in ~/.local/share/applications.

I had a problem too with it while using PlayOnLinux. And I was doing seriously stupid mistake. Be sure you don't do it. First of all get a x86 copy, secondly you have to mount and iso using mount command or program like Furius ISO Mount and then in PlayOnLinux choose the setup.exe. I thought that POL will automatically mount image for me but it doesn't. So ...
