BleachBit is a tool that will help us release a little bit of space on our hard drive erasing obsolete, unnecessary system files or that we just don’t want any more.
To install on Ubuntu family distributions (Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu, etc.) you do not need to add any additional repositories as the program is in the software sources officials, so you just need to open a console and type the command:
sudo apt-get install bleachbit
We enter our password and accept the changes.
Once installed we can launch the program with the command BleachBit. If we are in Kubuntu, for example, we can open KRunner and write BleachBit to launch the application.
With BleachBit you can delete temporary files, logs, cache and list of recent system documents, cookies and Flash cache, thumbnails generated by programs such as file manager, files .desktop broken, trash contents, clipboard history, unused translations, X11 debug logs, Bash history, and more depending on which apps we have installed — like the list of recently used documents VLC, the China cache or the Transmission- cache.
In addition BleachBit is capable of compact browser databases how Firefox, Opera and Chromium, Eliminating fragmentation and thus improving, in some cases, the speed of response when searching for a page in our bookmarks or somewhere saved in your browsing history.
It is important to check which boxes are checked before putting the program to work. Anyway BleachBit offers us the ability to view one preview of each of the changes to be made to the system before deleting anything.
