I installed Wine through the terminal using these commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install wine1.5

I know that I've removed at least part of wine. I removed the .wine folder in my home folder and I managed to remove the repository via this command:

sudo apt-add-repository --remove ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa

Now when I try to install wine 1.4 via Ubuntu software center, it tells me I must remove these items to install wine:

Microsoft windows compatibility layer (binary emulator and library) wine1.5

Microsoft windows compatibility layer (64-bit support) wine1.5-amd64

Microsoft windows compatibility layer (32-bit support) wine1.5-i386:i386

I've already tried this command:

sudo apt-get --purge remove wine

but it said that wine wasn't installed. Some assistance would be appreciated.
