View Full Version : [ubuntu] Is localepurge safe?

February 2nd, 2009, 05:51 PM
Hi all,

I wanted to clean my system. I read somewhere that localepurge cleans locale files.

I want to ask how safe is localepurge? Does it give any trouble afte cleaning? If you have used it, how is your personal experience?

It's one of the first things I install on a fresh Ubuntu installation. While I'm not hurting for disk space, it seems silly to waste it unnecessarily.

As long as you don't check the wrong language box (;)), it's safe. Like the others, it's one of the first things I do on a new install.

Thank you guys for you suggestions. The conclusion that I derive is localepurge is pretty safe.

So I will start using it. :)
