Okay, so, until a couple of days ago, I barely even knew the word Linux existed.

However, through troubleshooting (on this site) I had to install Ubuntu, and I fell in love with it.

 

However, Wine is not working correctly.   I can give specifications and such, but I was mostly wondering how to completely reinstall Wine.

 

And commands I get from the internet don't really remove everything.

 

Keep in mind, I literally have no idea what I'm doing.  I just enter the right command into the terminal from the internet. ;p

 

 

 

Addition Information:

 

I'm running Wine 1.6.1, and this is the error that comes up when trying to download a DLL I need.

 

"sha1sum mismatch! Rename /home/user/.cache/winetricks/wininet/3725.exe and try again."

note when using wine you have to have download and exe file application and then click open with wine. also not all windows exe files will work with ubuntu. that is why most linux users dual boot between windows and linux. would love it if a never had to use win7 again. just mess around with linux and have fun.


this also might help

Ah, thanks, guys.

 

And I'm trying to run a game, so yes, it has a high probability of not working.  But tons of other people get it working on their first try, so I'm obviously doing something wrong. :P

 

 

Also, I don't want to post another topic about it, so I'll just ask it here.  Could someone link me a good disk partitioning 'tutorial', especially one that works with people that don't have Windows installed?  I have no idea what I'm doing with that, either.

You may want to try out CodeWeavers, instead of just standard Wine.

Before using a command such as sudo apt-get purge wine\* you should read the discussion here:
