Open a terminal window:

Type in:

rm -rf $HOME/.wine

then type in to test if wine is working:

wine notepad

If you are re-installing a program or want to run winetricks:

{for program}

cd path-to-installer
wine installer-program-name
substitute the path-to-installer with the UNIX/Linux path to the 
installation program and installer-program-name with the name (usually 
setup.exe) of the installation program

[for winetricks]

Follow the use instructions in the Wine FAQ (http://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ 
item 7.5) to use winetricks.
