Deleting CrossOver Office Linux 19?

My trial installation of CrossOver Office 19, unfortunately, won't run the desired software (Quicken 2001 Deluxe). "Uninstall CrossOver Linux" deletes bottles but doesn't seem to remove it completely, because when I try to install an earlier version of XO (on which Q2001D runs) I'm told that a later version of XO is already installed.

Is there a terminal command to remove XO19 thoroughly so I can try to install my earlier version?

The "manual removal" option from this wiki should be sufficient to let you install an older version: If that doesn't work, please let me know so that we can update the wiki :)

Thank you, Anna! Synaptic did not find any CrossOver installation, but the rm command took out the /opt stuff.
A quick try of my crossover_13.0.1-1.deb using Gdebi-gtk still reported a later version existed. Maybe I need to reboot. I'll keep you posted.
Thanks again for the help!

At first you can uninstall the first step under desktop option "Crossover-->uninstall"
Second: under directory /opt/cxoffice/bin there is an executable file "cxuninstall" that you can call with parameter "--force". That will remove the rest - but you removed hole dir tree "/opt"

On my linux I only have three positions where crossover will put files:

1) a package of my distribution (opensuse: rpm -qa | grep -i crossover ; rpm -e <found-package>)
2) ~<username>/.cxoffice/...
3) /opt/cxoffice

[quote=31946] - but you removed hole dir tree "/opt"/quote]

My apologies for not being more clear. I did not delete /opt, only /opt/cxoffice. I was too lazy to look up what it was actually called (cxoffice or crossoveroffice), so I just said "stuff." But in /opt, it was only the cxoffice that was removed.

After you rebooted, did it still complain that a more recent version was installed?
