You weren't supposed to uninstall WINE, just the programs inside of WINE. Is there anything you have on Ubuntu you consider important? You might want to consider a fresh install and delete all the old Ubuntu information by burning the ISO to a DVD instead using InfraRecorder. This will ensure you have a 100% clean Ubuntu undisturbed by problems.
If you don't want to do that, please uninstall everything related to WINE using sudo commands. For example; sudo uninstall wine. Yes, now we must try removing your WINE.
You can further clean up the system of the files by going; sudo ppa-purge the ppa you want to remove
. If purge says its not installed, you'll need to install it. Next, I want you to run sudo apt-get autoclean
, sudo apt-get clean
, and sudo apt-get autoremove
. After all of that is run, please restart your computer and log back in. If you still see WINE, then go the Package Center, type WINE in the upper corner search box and you'll see a list. There should be a check mark next to it if you have it installed. If so, click it. If not, exit out of this place.
If you managed to remove WINE, please installed an older version of the system. The beta version does not work properly. Please follow this guide, http://www.winehq.org/download/ubuntu,and
add the PPA Repository! After that, I want you to install WINE no other way than this code; sudo apt-get install wine
. After you install an older version (do not upgrade), update the files by typing this; sudo apt-get update
. Now, we must install Winetricks.
$ wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks
$ chmod +x winetricks
$ sh winetricks
If you want to be sure, do the sudo apt-get update
command again and then restart the computer. When you get back into the computer, use Winetricks to install all the DLLs again.
I can't find Program Files or a Windows folder in my hard drive...
Go into /home/
. Once you are in home, press CTRL + H. Not at once, but CTRL first, hold it down, and then press H. This will load all the hidden folders, including the .wine folders you earlier posted a directory URL to, which was: /home/synthesis/.wine/dosdevices/c:/windows/Microsoft.NET/Framework/v2.0.50727/mscorlib.dll not found"
