    Synaptic package manager

    Hello

    I'd like to know if the synaptic package manager saves a copy of the installation/source file of all the downloads that it has completed.

    If yes, then I'd like to know where they are stored, and if it is fine to delete them in order to save space.

    TIA!

    open xterm and enter:

    sudo apt-get clean

    this will clear out much junk

    also yo do not need to clear out this is not Windoze
    You do what? Are you crazy!

    It is safe to delete them just run this in a terminal:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get clean
    They are stored in /var/cache/apt, running the above automatically deletes them from that directory

    hope that helps,

    Thanks! I needed this as I'm on a system with limited memory.
