The CCleaner for Ubuntu?

CCleaner is an essential application for Windows. Ubuntu users occasionally ask about an equivalent for their operating system, usually to be told that it isn't necessary- Linux is not Windows.
Well, I think I've found the CCleaner for Ubuntu. It's called BleachBit, and on my computer it found 600MB of "junk": not an insignificant amount on a 10GB /home partition.


  1. Thanks for that. I work for an organisation that has internet access for clients. We use Ubuntu as an ethical and more reliable choice and needed a tool to whip personal data from the computers when clients had finished using them. This has been a great help.
