    Should I use this command regularly to keep my system clean or is it used if you have any problems?

    All it does is remove .deb files for packages you no longer have installed, IMHO something to do a few times a year at most or if you run low on disk space.

    Cheers, Nick

    some of this stuff can be done from within Synaptics package manager.

    i like to use the Bleachbit cleaner as both root and user.
    i love using a GUI tools for those things; the less commands i have to commit to memory the better.

    i use those kind of tools once or twice a week before taking a disk image.

    i use bleachbit without root also dont clean your temp files safe side is clean browers cache flash and thumbnails .... it reduce lot of disk space i dont clean apt-get unless it give me problem also i dont mess with temp ....etc


    cleaned brower flash thumbnails alone give you lot of recover space also once in few 3-4 months you can do is clean free space it delete all deleted files beyond recovery and recent file history if you dont want to keep :)
