Uninstalling Wine via Lite Software doesn't seem to do so completely.  I usually have Winetricks or other remnants afterwards.  I have to go to Install/Remove Software and remove anything associated with Wine.  I've noticed similar performance when installing and removing Play on Linux via Lite Software.

If you can tell me exactly what programs they leave behind, I can add them to the removal process. Thank you.

It installs more than that... also dependencies you miss.

I don't think you wanna remove the dependencies with the Lite Software (some other software may need them).

Usually just do "sudo apt-get --purge autoremove wine"
Since you uninstalled only "wine" package, the other stuff is now listed in auto removable, you can do "sudo apt-get autoremove", or use the Lite Tweaks to do it.

To Zead,

If you install/uninstall Wine, you'll see Winetricks remaining in the Whisker Menu.

If you install/uninstall Play on Linux, you'll see Winetricks and other Wine items in the Whisker Menu.

Quite frankly, the uninstall of Play on Linux and Wine via Lite Software happened so quickly, I don't think it was removing much, if anything.  Your method may work, but it doesn't serve the intent of Lite Software or the needs of the new user Linux Lite caters to.

And this of course, is what we aim for. We'll see what we can do here.

Ok so I've had a look into this. Because Wine and Playonlinux install such specifically numbered dependencies, our removal code is such that we would have to keep track of exactly what versions of dependencies get added and updated to the wine ppa. This is not something we can do.

I have just installed and removed both Wine and Playonlinux successfully on a fresh install of LL using the current Lite Software, there are no Menu remnants. The fact that you have these still in your menu is a mystery at this point. We will add the removal of winetricks to our code and see if that makes a difference. You will have to use Lite Tweaks as Zead suggested to remove the specific dependencies of Wine and or Playonlinux if you want to completely purge your system of those dependencies. Otherwise, they do no harm sitting in your system.
