BleachBit 0.8.3-Linux-All of a sudden it's hanging, plus I can't clear config to reinstall as "new"

I noticed this tonight. I have Lucid 10.04, and all was fine with the prior release (including the "bonus pack") I do recall latest release was OK, too, but today I did a "preview", and it suddenly hung on something I don't have (yes, I have always checked apps I don't have...) I removed those checks, and then it hung on something else - eventually hanging on WINE - which I DO have...

I deleted any "bleach*" via synaptic, rebooted and then installed the OLD version from the Ubuntu Repositories. I then ran it - and it's got all the config/applications that are listed from 0.8.3!


Bleachbit in RHEL4?

Hi, I am trying to install bleachbit in RHEL4. It is asking for a whole lot of other upgrades - pygtk2-2.6, python update etc etc.. Problem is all those are not available for RHEL4. And Tryign to build each one from the source is becomign a never ending story. (I am a noobie in linux). So, here's my query.. Is bleachbit supported for RHEL4? Or should i just give up? Thanks a lot.

Bonus pack installing problem

Hi all :)

I have a little problem installing the 0.7.1 bonus pack on my brand new Kubuntu 10.10 with KDE 4.5.1.
When trying to install, I get an error message "Can't open file »/var/lib/dpkg/«: Is a directory"

Does anyone know how to solve that problem?

So long,


Ubuntu lucid extra package is not installing

Hi! I have 3 questions here :

1) I am using Ubuntu 10.04 32 bit. I installed from repos the bleachbit. But when i try to install the bonus package it writes : "Sorry, 'bleachbit-bonus' is not available for this type of computer (i386)." But i can install the bonus package properly (and it works) by downloading from official web site of Bleachibt. But now i have to install manually when updating the bonus pack, also i am not user if it is stable my system because of this error which i get from "software center" of Ubuntu 10.04.


Free disk space should be OFF at every start of BleachBit

Free disk space is indispensable feature which I use often, because I am running Linux off a flash drive and I back it up often. The back up is way smaller in size using this feature.
I just have a request that this feature is dis-selected by default and only be turned on when required. I keep forgetting to dis-select it after I used it when need it and then I have to wait 30 minutes to become responsive again, not to mention unnecessary writes to my flash drive.


Puppy Linux Support

Can you make one for Puppy Linux?




Ubuntu Hardy and RSSOWL

RSSOWL keeps it's internal web cache in /home/user/.mozilla/eclipe/ Ubuntu Hardy

If you would like to add that to the folders to clean... that would be great... tnx

Bleachbit is the best !

Delete uneeded xorg drivers

I would like Bleachbit to be able to remove unneeded xorg log files:

for example, I only need, and will never need anything else but my integrated Intel driver.
There is a ton of useless drivers that for my system I will never use.

VLC media player?

I'm not seeing it--is there a way to get BleachBit to clean VLC's history? I'm running Linux.


Delete old Linux Kernels

It would be nice if BleachBit could remove old Kernels which are not automatically removed with

sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get autoclean && sudo apt-get clean

that cleans additionally several 100MB in the most cases.

Old Kernels can automatically removed with:
sudo dpkg -l 'linux-*' | sed '/^ii/!d;/'"$(uname -r | sed "s/\(.*\)-\([^0-9]\+\)/\1/")"'/d;s/^[^ ]* [^ ]* \([^ ]*\).*/\1/;/[0-9]/!d' | xargs sudo apt-get -y purge

Perhaps its possible to add this to BleachBit.
