I am very fascinated with the professional help here on AskUbuntu. And I need your help again. I installed Ubuntu just two days ago and spent all this time setting it up. Now the question is about the Photoshop.

I followed this: https://askubuntu.com/a/530127/491656

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

sudo apt-get install wine1.7 winetricks

Everything was fine, but after the last one I got:

winetricks atmlib gdiplus msxml3 msxml6 vcrun2005 vcrun2005sp1 vcrun2008 ie6 fontsmooth-rgb gecko

I installed the Photoshop, but...I decided to delete all these and Photoshop, because I don't wont to use it in Linux. It feels like I miss Windows, but I don't. I'm looking forward to delete all files and dependencies installed so nothing left in Ubuntu. Could you please, help me to clarify what should I write in terminal?

I have Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64b

Before following CiberSheep instructions, you can delete Photoshop with the Wine Uninstaller. Run, in a terminal:

wine uninstaller

Find Photoshop and remove it.

After doing what CiberSheep said, run sudo apt-get autoremove to remove dependencies.

  • Okay. Thank you @Eduardo Cola for your response. So, I've done what you said, but it seems Photoshop uninstaller doesn't respond. It's frozen and doesn't respond...

  • Then find Photoshop's installation directory and remove it maually. If you installed it in Wine's "C:" drive run, in a terminal, nautilus $HOME/.wine/drive_c and look for it there. Jan 11, 2016 at 19:09
  • @bodhi.zazen he might have installed Photoshop in a place other than Wine's C: drive. I always do it with my Windows games. Jan 11, 2016 at 19:10
  • Okay, friends. So, I successfully uninstalled Photoshop and run <sudo apt-get purge wine>, but the answer is <Package 'wine' is not installed, so not removed>. What should I do?

You can type this in the terminal.

sudo apt-get purge wine

That would be enough to uninstall and purge it. But it is important that you understand what you are doing ;) so at the beginning take some time to look for the commands you are going to type in the terminal.

You can take a look here.

  • I looked there. Thank you for that link. I'll learn how to manage that but I need some time. Btw, if I use <sudo apt-get purge wine> will it delete all dependencies?

    That will NOT remove Photoshop.
