    I'm currently using BleachBit on Linux Mint. I'm wondering what else you all are using,as I'd like to find something like CCleaner.

    Thanks!:cool:

    For Windows systems I've been a long term user of CCleaner , although I tend to favor PriVazer these days .
    When it comes to Linux however , BleachBit is pretty much " all she wrote " .

    I have spent a good bit of time looking into this and I haven't found anything better , so far .

    I feel the same way about Everything , from voidtools .... I just can't find anything that even comes close to it ,
    for Linux systems .

    "Swings and roundabouts " , as the saying goes .

    It is not needed as much in Linux. Linux mostly has plain text configuration files that are fairly easy to understand. No registry to get trashed. A simple way to clean things up is to create a new account which will just have the default home/user folder contents. If you want to clean up package installation files that are no longer needed, "sudo apt-get autoremvove" will do that.
