Clean cruft with Janitor

linux, Product Info, QuickFix, Technical, Ubuntu | 0 comments

Many of you might be wondering if we could get our Ubuntu system cleaned quickly and easily. If you’re using update-manager for installing the updates, it automatically cleans the downloaded packages along with unsupported dependencies etc. But this won’t remove many other cruft which I’m mentioning here ie. old kernel versions, transitional packages, unnecessary packages etc. How do we get these things cleaned safely?

Right, there must be some tool called system-cleaner and I just found exactly the same. CleanupCruft or Computer Janitor earlier known as System Cleaner.  It’s now available on Ubuntu 9.04 Alpha5 (Jaunty Jackalope) under System -> Admnistration menu.


Its quite simple, easy to use and a handy tool. Try it today…
