    Re: HOWTO: Cleaning up all those unnecessary junk files...

    What about "Installed (local or obsolete)" in synaptic?
    In a clean install this section is empty.
    I think lots of the packages could be uninstalled.
    (except sun-j2re1.5, win32codecs and flashplayer-mozilla and other "real" local install)
    So how do I figure out which packages could be uninstalled?
    For instance, I got a big bunch of python2.3 packages there as well as what I think outdated lib-packages.
    Not essential, but when we talk about cleaning........

    Hi, good tutorial, but....

    I do the localepurge and all right, but now I opened mysql-query-browser and when I try to make a modification it exits and says:

    "requested widget 'charset_combo' with the wrong type"

    How can I put the locales back???

    Thanx

    PS: sorry about my bad english

    Thanks, I didn't get rid of much; but then again I did just install this.

    Since I'm running Xubuntu, I give it the Xubuntu OK!

    Re: HOWTO: Cleaning up all those unnecessary junk files...

    Thank you. I am new to the Linux/Ubuntu thing and am elated to find something besides the "other 2". I really appreciate your thoughtful, concise, yet thorough and easy-to-follow tips. I understand how experienced users don't like some of the 'newbie' questions but I also don't like thoughtless, flippant, replies that don't work. Well done.

    Re: HOWTO: Cleaning up all those unnecessary junk files...

    So should I heed the warning for localpurge????

    Automagically remove unnecessary locale data
    This is just a simple script to recover diskspace wasted for unneeded
    locale files and localized man pages. It will automagically be invoked
    upon completion of any apt installation run.

    Please note, that this tool is a hack which is *not* integrated with
    Debian's package management system and therefore is not for the faint
    of heart. This program interferes with the Debian package management
    and does provoke strange, but usually harmless, behaviour of programs
    related with apt/dpkg like dpkg-repack, debsums, reportbug, etc.
    Responsibility for its usage and possible breakage of your system
    therefore lies in the sysadmin's (your) hands.


    Please definitely do abstain from reporting any such bugs blaming
    localepurge if you break your system by using it. If you don't know
    what you are doing and can't handle any resulting breakage on your own
    then please simply don't use this package.
