MEPIS 12 Community Repository: The Bleachbit Thread

#1 Post by Stevo » Wed Feb 25, 2015 12:15 am

We have a newer version of Bleachbit, 1.6, in the main testing repo. Please be aware that if you aren't certain what you are removing, you could possibly damage your profiles. Also some operations, such as scrubbing free space on your drives, may take very long periods of time, though you now get a popup warning of this.

Description:
BleachBit deletes unnecessary files to free valuable disk space, maintain
privacy, and remove junk. It removes cache, Internet history, temporary files,
cookies, and broken shortcuts.
It handles cleaning of Adobe Reader, Bash, Beagle, Epiphany, Firefox, Flash,
GIMP, Google Earth, Java, KDE, OpenOffice.org, Opera, RealPlayer, rpmbuild,
Second Life Viewer, VIM, XChat, and more.
Beyond simply erasing junk files, BleachBit wipes free disk space (to hide
previously deleted files for privacy and to improve compression of images),
vacuums Firefox databases (to improve performance without deleting data), and
securely shreds arbitrary files.

Bleachbit 1.12 is now available in the test repository. Better than a cloth
for wiping data off drives!
