I installed Wine through a .pkg file, and I want to completely remove all traces of Wine.

I've searched around the internet, but I cannot find any way to uninstall wine if you've installed through a .pkg file. I installed this one: enter image description here

Can I just search Wine in Finder with show hidden files on, and delete all of the results that have to do with wine?

  • Go into applications folder while Wine's quit, then drag it into the trash and empty the trash? – owlswipe Jan 7 '17 at 21:39
  • @owlswipe I'm pretty sure Wine has some other files other than in the Applications folder, like for example .wine – abc Jan 8 '17 at 4:12

An uninstaller doesn't exist for this app (Wine Staging 2.0-rc3).

The pkg file itself only installs Wine Staging.app to /Applications, which is self-contained and you can simply delete it.

Almost anything else like user installed apps or libraries reside in the folder $USER/.wine and you can simply delete it. Some files are also added in $USER/.local/*/ or $USER/.config/*/. The .local and .config folders may also be used by other apps like X11 or Wireshark. Here are some directories you may find preferences and other cruft.

~/Library/Application\ Support/Wine

    sudo rm -rf ~/.wine though; otherwise it will try to remove .wine from the root of the drive, which is not where it creates the directory at. – l3l_aze Apr 28 '18 at 23:01
  • Even though, I've deleted all files (including WineHQ official recommendation and custom search at PC). However, when I launch new PlayOnMac it conflicts and opens empty windows of WINEHQ! – Oleksandr Jul 20 '18 at 10:45
