How Can I Uninstall Wine?

I installed wine and a few apps under wine.
Then I decided to uninstall wine and all what I installed under it.
I did it throw the “Add/Remove Software” and uninstalled wine, removed “orphans” then rebooted.

    ~  sudo pacman -Rsc wine                                                                          ✔ 
[sudo] password for limo: 
error: target not found: wine
    ~                

Still in the start menu wine icon appears and icons for the software I installed! Clicking any of them does nothing though.

How to “clean” everything and get rid of those icons.

I will appreciate your help.

Removing an application does not remove the application’s configuration files from the individual user’s home directory.

What desktop environment are you using?


Hi @Aragorn
I am on:
Branch: Stable
Desktop Environment: KDE
CPU: Processors: 4 × Intel® Core™ i5-3210M CPU @ 2.50GHz
GPU: Mesa DRI Intel® HD Graphics 4000
Kernel: 5.15.32-1-MANJARO

Log out of Plasma completely — you have to be looking at the login screen — and then press Ctrl+Alt+F3. Log in as yourself with your user name and password. Then issue the following commands… :arrow_down:

rm -rf .wine
rm -rf .cache/*

Now press Alt+F1 and log back into Plasma. The menu entries should now be gone.

I logged out and did the commands.
Nothing changed! :scream:

Seemed to be deleting lots of files (I guess so as I noticed it took a second to get get the cursor after finishing.
Then I deleted the wine files and folders as @megavolt

Thanks a lot @Aragorn and @megavolt
It is clean now.
Thank you.
