    Re: One your computer - ONE BUTTON for end-user

    Microsoft Windows applications like Iobit Advanced SystemCare and ToolwizCareFree don't apply in the Linux world. Linux doesn't have a registry that needs to be cleaned like Windows nor do the disk formats used in Linux require defragmenting. You can run an Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware app if you wish.

    I must not understand what system maintenance you want to perform in one button click.

    Use whatever OS or desktop works for you. Backup your computer regularly, and definitely before upgrading or partitioning.

    Well, to be fair, it sort of does, but you just have to run
    Code:
    dconf reset -f  /
    = D

    Do you run that command as part of your normal maintenance routine? I think the OP is asking about maintenance applications.

    My reaction was NOOOOOO I don't want the scumware you get on Windows which most optimisers are. However, Old_Grey_Wolf is right Ubuntu other Linux and BSDs don't degrade like Windows (this is a Windows feature) you simply don't need optimisers (which don't fix windows like reinstalling does). There is no reason not to use synaptic etc if you want but it wont magically make your computer faster

    There's BleachBit. And Computer Janitor found in Ubuntu Tweak.

    BleachBit should be in the repo. Ubuntu Tweak's from a PPA.

    As always, use caution and common sense when using 'cleaners.'

    Give a man a ghoti, and he'll eat for a day. Teach him how to ghoti, and he'll eat for life.

    God no. I mean, I do if something's jacked up, after backing up the areas I need (like Compiz and Dash settings.) I was just being silly since the Windows Registry was mentioned and since dconf really is very much like the Windows registry now, but at least has a kill switch.

    Sounds like placeboware. Maybe we need something like this:

    Code:
    for i in `seq 0 100`; do echo $i; sleep 1; done | zenity --progress --title="Optimizer" --text="Optimizing your PC"
    j/k

    That works great! My computer runs twice as fast now. You should submit that for inclusion in the repos.

    By the time it made it into the repos it'll be too old a version.
