Uninstall WineDoors Apps ?????????????/

Postby greenducky on Sun Mar 16, 2008 3:50 am

OK so from other forums i read that mint has the option of letting you remove items in the menu by just right clicking on them. well it seems as if i do not have this option.
i dunno. i am right clicking on everything in the menu, and all i get is (add to Favorites) i don't get any uninstaller option. i am running Linux mint Daryna. What i am trying to is remove wine doors and its applications. cause it seems that it never fully installed any of them besides dreamweaver. i have other apps that winedoors installed but they don't work, so i open wine doors and click in the tab that says installed apps. and then i click under each app and there is an uninstall option there, so i click it and then it just hangs there for hours. it doesn't do anything.

I also opened synaptic and and founds wine doors installed, and i clicked it to remove it. well that worked to uninstall the program. but all of the apps are still there, even though they don't work. And i know how to go into the menu and hide the apps from showing up, but i do not know how to uninstall the apps i want them and their files gone entirely, so i can start fresh again. i am so friggin annoyed.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Look for 'Main Menu' under preferences. That will allow you to edit the entries without a problem. Not sure where you heard that you could delete items while using the menu, but that is not correct.

I think you can right click in Main Menu and then delete.... (from my unreliable memory).

My only response is - been there, done that and it sucks. :!:
I've had Linux Mint 4.0 almost since the day it was released and had to do a number of reinstallations. IMHO, Wine Doors blows. I don't even mess with it anymore 'cause I can't seem to find the solutions YOUR looking for. I've tried and tried and all I ended up with was a screwed up Mint OS every time. Wine isn't the greatest either. A lot of things don't work with it either :!: then I have the same problem.
Just my 2 cents on the whole Wine deal. I hope it will all get worked out in the future.

regards,

Marty,

I didn't post it in my previous response, but I agree with you. Wind Doors has a long way to go. You click on some of the programs and it tries to install something other than what you want. Many of the programs just simply do not install.

Since it is very simple to download an setup.exe file and install it through Wine, it seems to me that Wine Doors is largely superfluous.

Wine Doors is a waste of time.

Regards
John
