I have installed wine on mu computer the other day, but it seems that it inst properly installed. although I can open .exe files with the Wine Windows Program Loader, wine doesn't appear in the unity dash or in Ubuntu Software Center. I tried to remove it to properly install it again with

sudo apt-get remove wine

but it said that the package was not installed. And now it doesnt let me install Wine because there are "unmet dependancies".

The following packages have unmet dependencies: wine : Depends: wine1.6 E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

How can I uninstall Wine so I can re-install it?

Try running sudo apt-get install -f to resolve the unmet dependencies.
