Just curious about the list of apps being cleaned

Forum tags: 

I installed Opera in WIndows 7 but Bleachbit 1.5.2 doesn't identify it on its software list. After running BB, I copied the processed list from its window and searched for "opera" and these were the only items found. Please note the link in "CProgram FilesOpera25.0....." I wonder if it's an error?

Delete 0 C:\Windows\temp\CProgram FilesOpera25.0.1614.68opera_autoupdate.download.lock
Delete 214B C:\Windows\temp\opera_autoupdate.log


That's weird. As seen here, http://bleachbit.sourceforge.net/features there is a cleaner entry for Opera. I don't think anyone has tested BleachBit on Opera in a very long time now. Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling BleachBit to see if it was a installation error?

Purged and reinstalled it. It was hidden under "Hide irrelevant cleaners". I haven't used Opera yet today so there was no Opera data. I will check it later and will post here if something is not OK.

Someone recently reported bug 1389821 that a new version of Opera is not detected. This is most likely because the cleaner needs to be updated. As the link indicates, I hope to fix this in BleachBit version 1.8 (the stable release after 1.6). If you would like to get a head start, see the CleanerML documentation and opera.xml The two files you noted under c:\windows\temp are not cleaned by the Opera cleaner: they are cleaned by System - Temporary Files.
