Linux Google Chrome Passwords

Forum tags: 

When running BleachBit 0.9.4 to clean up Google Chrome my saved passwords are being deleted. I figured since Google Chrome does not have a Passwords check box option similar to Firefox that my passwords would not be removed.

Running BleachBit 0.9.4 on Linux Mint 13

delete Firefox history


BB doesn't seem to remove all of the Firefox history. I visited , closed Firefox , ran BB. When I started Firefox again, I searched for Napa auto parts in the Firefox Google search box. The results returned by Google for were highlighted , showing that I visited that site already. Running BB should have removed the history, right? I don't get it. Why does this happen? I'm using BB 0.9.3, Firefox 14.0.1 and Linux Mint 11.

Bleachbit 0.9.3 Source Code unavailable on Sourceforge

Forum tags: 

Good day,

This post is a report,(and question) to say that the following 3 Linux source downloads aren't available via the download links

bleachbit-0.9.3.tar.bz2 (best choice for most people wanting source code)

Sourceforge gives the following message:

The "/bleachbit/0.9.3/ble..achbit-0.9.3.tar.bz2" file could not be found or is not available. Please select another file.

Is there an alternative site or link that can be used?

Thanking you.

Bleachbit not cleaning firefox. Majore privacy concern / problem.


Installed bleachbit the other day, just noticed that after all the times I've used it, that it hasn't been working! My firefox is showing every single site I've been on and everything I've downloaded. Can you help this to work please. I'm running a version of Ubuntu called Backtrack 5 R2. I downloaded the latest Bleachbit 0.9.2 from source as the respositories are ancient. (# Just checked : Ancient 0.7.? version of Bleachbit isn't working as well) Firefox retains logs and jeopardises privacy.

Any help to sort this out would be MASSIVELY appreciated!

Not Working for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS


I installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on my computer. I opened Ubuntu Software Center and typed "bleachbit" and only one option came up. I downloaded and installed it. It does not work. I double-click the bleachbit icon and nothing (visible) happens. I tried opening it as Administrator and it prompts me with a password. After I enter my password, nothing happens. I visited the Sourceforge download page and saw a list of Ubuntu versions but Ubuntu 12.04 LTS was missing. Is this why it doesn't work? Is there just not a version of bleachbit for it yet? Is it just me?

Remove Empty Folders

Forum tags: 

Not too familar with current windows. Solely Fedora user. both bare and kvm_guests.

But a cleaner that could remove empty folders.
there is rmdir /pat/to/remove/folders
but what if you have unmounted shares, nfs, cifs etc.
(exlude folders, already included in BB)

I will have a look at cleamer_lm, but not an xml scripter.

Bleachbit doesn't do anything on Ubuntu 11.10

Forum tags: 

Ever since upgrading to 11.10, when I try to run Bleachbit (latest versions), the controls ghost out as if it's working, but there's no drive activity and no log of what's being done. I left it that way for at least half an hour and saw no results. Any suggestions as to why this might be happening?

bleachbit deletes some files in /tmp which I want to protect

Forum tags: 

I offload my roundrobin databases (*.rrd) and some html files into /tmp/monitorix-data and periodically sync them back to my physical disc. Bleachbit (v0.91) deletes them which is bad... It doesn't however touch my browser profile dir which is also in /tmp under /tmp/username-chromium. Is this expected or a bug?

# bleachbit --clean system.cache system.localizations system.trash system.tmp
/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gtk/ GtkWarning: could not open display
warnings.warn(str(e), _gtk.Warning)

Linux Fedora Core 15: /usr/lib/locale/locale-archive still large after removing all but one locale


After running bleachbit 0.8.7-1 on Linux Fedora Core 15 as root to remove all but 'en' locales (that removed 400 meg of files!), I see that /usr/lib/locale/locale-archive is still 100 meg, and the command 'locale -a' lists 100 or so locales. Trying to run the command build-locale-archive fails because locale-archive-tmpl has been truncated to an empty file. If I delete locale-archive* and then do yum reinstall glibc-common, I end up with many locales reinstalled and the locale-archive is 100 Meg. Suggestions?

Clean windows or mac install from linux

Hi - I'm wondering if there is a way to clean a windows (or Mac) install from Linux using bleach bit...we are using debian and would like to be able to clean windows and Mac hard drives from debian.

Thanks for your time,
