I installed Picasa 3.9 with Wine, but I did not like it, and now I want to delete it.

I tried uninstalling Picasa with the option from Picasa help menu but it didn't work.

How do I fully uninstall Picasa from Wine?

If the application you're trying to uninstall doesn't show up when you run wine uninstaller, proceed.

Note: The following command wipes out all the programs installed in the default Wine prefix. Be advised. Since Windows programs may store data and documents on the "virtual" Windows drive contained in your .wine folder, you must make sure any valuable files are saved elsewhere first!

To completely delete the Wine prefix, run the following command.

rm -r ~/.wine

The next time you run Wine, it will create a new prefix by itself.

    Note that this remove all files installed by Picasa, but also removes all files of other programs, thus "uninstalling" them.

Removing the .wine folder delete ALL your content. To simply remove one or multiple specific programs, run in a terminal:

wine uninstaller
