BleachBit 2.0/LinuxLite3.8

Forums: 
Forum tags: 

got a bit of non-urgent, i think, concern. i'm using BB2.0 on LinuxLite3.8 (based on Ubuntu16.04,not dual boot). when i run BB as admin, i notice that while BB is doing it's thing 258m shows up in APT. it doesn't show up everytime, on occasion if i run BB twice in a row (just for fun) that 258m will show up again. i have run `Free Disk Space' and it still comes up. i have removed and re-installed BB several times.......to no avail.

Linux - free space wipe of partitions

Forums: 

Hi ... thanks for this great software. I am running v2.0 on Ubuntu 18.04. My disk is set up with partitions for:
- / (root)
- swap
- /home

Question 1:
When go to Preferences / Drives to set the wiping folder, I can see it defaults to a folder in /home. For added security, should I also be specifying a folder in the / partition?

Question 2:
Am I right in thinking that Wipe Free Space will automatically wipe the swap partition?

Thanks!

Hi all,

I've posted in reddit but having slow progress there so coming to the source.

I ran BleachBit for the first time and since then whenever I try and install anything it never works.
The full reddit thread is here: https://www.reddit.com/r/linuxquestions/comments/82vwlm/i_just_installed...

Here are the key points:

When I try and install anything with apt install etc it fails.

sudo apt install nautilus-image-converter

It spits out this error:

Is there any restriction on custom files/folders for deletion?

Forums: 
Forum tags: 

Hi,
I currently use Bleachbit 1.12 under Linux Mint 18.
I have a long list of (localization) files for deletion due to some non-standard/manual software installations.
I've manually added them via Edit > Preferences > Custom and there's nothing wrong with their locations af far as I can see - e.g. /home/sadi/.local/share/locale/ru, (user) /opt/bluegriffon/distribution/extensions/langpack-ru@bluegriffon.org.xpi (system).
However, I don't see them listed during Preview, or Cleaned afterward.

BleachBit finds passwords to delete even though Chromium is set to not store passwords

Forums: 

Browser: Chromium version 60.0.3112.78 (Developer Build)
OS: Linux Mint 18.2 (32-bit)

I have encountered an odd problem with BleachBit and Chromium:
I have Chromium set to not save any passwords, yet when I close the browser and click on "Clean" in BleachBit (standard, non-root version), BB identifies that I have passwords.
This happens every time without fail, yet in the right-hand pane in BB I can see that no passwords have been deleted.

Create custom cleaner_data in binary file?

Forums: 

I'm not sure about the process to create custom cleaners for this type of data, or if it's realistically possible.
This is in Mint, but should have a similar concept in some distros.

I couldn't find a submitted cleaner for Mint's default text editor (XED) on https://github.com/az0/cleanerml, or for default text editors of most other distros.

Format Feature?

Forums: 

Hello,

Is there an bootable ISO available for BleachBit that can format/wipe hard drives like Darik's Boot and Nuke (DBAN)? Is there a format/wipe feature within BleachBit to completely erase hard drives within Linux, Windows, etc?
