I recently upgraded to ubuntu 20.04 after using 18.04 for 3 years, and i was playing around with the new snap Ubuntu Software, and saw there is Trackmania listed in games
so i installed it.
But when i tried to open it it showed me wine is being setup in home folder, i dont want wine to be installed in my current setup so i removed Trackmania, and checked if wine is installed with
dpkg -l | grep ^ii | grep -i wine
But wine is not present, then i searched for wine prefixes
du -sh ~/.wine/*
nothing there, but as i know from experience if wine is installed it doesn't go away that easily, so since Ubuntu Software is totally a snap app now, i checked if some snap is installed which is related to wine (i never knew wine can be as a snap).
shantanu@shantanu-pc:~$ ls /var/lib/snapd/snaps
and lo and behold there it is, but what is it exactly this
wine-platform-runtime_251.snap ? these are for sure not full flegged wine, so what are they and what do they do.
Can i remove them without breaking the system ? I mean i am not much familiar with snap ecosystem, and not sure if these two wine runtimes came with fresh ubuntu install.
Thanks for reading.
