bleachbit portable

Forums: 

I have downloaded bleachbit portable. Can i save it on a usb and run it on a different linux sistem?

The download called BleachBit Portable is for Windows systems. It can be saved on a USB disk and used on any Windows system. It will retain its settings on the USB drive.

If you want a portable BleachBit for Linux, you can use the source distribution, unpack it, and run it. It does not need to be compiled, and it does not need to be installed.

thank you andrew. Please could you help me with these steps?

1) first i download the tar. tarball
2) I red this:

tar xvjf bleachbit-1.8.tar.bz2
cd bleachbit-1.8
make -C po local
python bleachbit.py

They talk about launching these commands to run it, but these are tree commands.. so what should i do?
I have to run commands as single commands or all togheter?

In a terminal run the four commands on a separate lines. After each line press ENTER to execute the command.

The first command (tar) unpacks the archive. The second command (cd) changes directory). The third command (make) builds the translations. The final command (python) launches BleachBit.

Good morning I have tryed to download the source code, the tal bar on d so on... but when i go into the terminal and i tipe the commands above as you have described the output is this: ''tar (child): bleachbit-1.8.tar.bz2: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now'

In the terminal make sure you use the cd command to change directory to the same location as where you downloaded BleachBit. This location varies based on your settings, but you can try this

cd ~/Downloads
tar xvjf bleachbit-1.8.tar.bz2
cd bleachbit-1.8
make -C po local
python bleachbit.py

Or this command will do the download for you

cd ~
wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/bleachbit/files/bleachbit/1.8/bleachbit-1.8.tar.bz2/download
tar xvjf bleachbit-1.8.tar.bz2
cd bleachbit-1.8
make -C po local
python bleachbit.py

thank you very much, i got it.
The only problem was that while bleachbit was going to be executed i red someting like ''malicious cleaners can damage your sistem, if you are not sure quit'', something like that, i don't remember the exact words.
What does it means?

This means it is the first time it has seen those files. On BleachBit portable it is normal to see this message the first time after an installation or upgrade, but you should not see it unless you do an installation, upgrade, or intentionally modify one of those files.
