 Bleachbit
Hi,

A link some people might like: Bleachbit is a nice system cleaner. The Mepis packaged version is a bit old but I see the author supplies pre-packaged versions for many distros here: http://bleachbit.sourceforge.net/download/linux

The Debian Lenny link throws up an incompatible Ubuntu.deb, so you might try the following url instead, or maybe one of the CR packagers could do their magic on it and drop it into the community repos.

http://packages.debian.org/sid/all/bleachbit/download

No.. actually.. the Sourceforge message saying the package is not there is a bit confusing. The original link takes you to:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/bleachbit/files/

And if you scroll down you will see:

bleachbit_0.8.0-1_all_debian5.deb

That's the package I installed. As far as I can see it works great. (I'm on Mepis 8.5)

I stopped using it in M 8.5, after I ran it, my desktop would vanish as soon as I touched a key or moved the mouse

I get the blank screen thing too. Just figured it was doing a really good job! Doesn't cause any long term probs, I just log in again.
