Lite Tweaks - Suggestions welcomed

(1/45) > >>

Our next addition to the Lite application family will be Lite Tweaks.


--- Code: ---sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install lite-cleaner
--- End code ---

Source here:

Before we embark on this, I'd like to ask the community for the type of tasks they'd like to see in a cleaner.
For example:

* Clean out package cache
* Perform autoremove of packages no longer neededLet the ideas flow. Remember, no idea is a bad idea :)

What? Like Bleachbit? Personally. I am too much of a control freak to trust a autocleaner.

Hope you don't mind what I post. If so I will modify and delete

 Remove unwanted junk.

--- Code: --- apt-get autoremove

--- End code ---

--- Code: --- deborphan | xargs apt-get -y remove
--- End code ---

--- Code: ---  COLUMNS=200 dpkg -l |grep ^rc |awk '{print $2} ' | xargs dpkg -P

--- End code ---

When I was in windows (last week) I used a free program called CCleaner it seemed to do the job quite well and had/has a number of functions from cleaning to registry checking to uninstalling unwanted progs and their components. I don't know how much of that sort of thing would apply to LL. but something similar might be good.


There should be an option to remove old kernels.
I guess these are already in the script.

--- Code: ---sudo apt-get autoclean
--- End code ---

--- Code: ---sudo apt-get clean
--- End code ---

--- Code: ---sudo apt-get autoremove
--- End code ---

Maybe clearing thumbnail cache

--- Code: --- rm -f ~/.cache/thumbnails/normal/*
--- End code ---
Purging unused configuration files

--- Code: ---sudo dpkg --purge $(COLUMNS=200 dpkg -l | grep "^rc" | tr -s ' ' | cut -d ' ' -f 2)
--- End code ---
Trash cleanup

--- Code: ---rm -r -f ~/.local/share/Trash/files/*
--- End code ---
Browser cache cleanup, would also be usefull.

Thanks folks, keep'm coming, some good ones there already :)
