    If you like GUI tools, and want to see a visual representation of your HD space, Filelight, a program that can be installed from Synaptic, might prove useful. I use it regularly to make sure that directories (like hidden trash cans) aren't filling up with stuff.

    Thanks for this. Having only had ubuntu for about 2 weeks I keep getting this feeling I might be accumulating all sorts of rubbish but don't know where to look for it so I feel much better now.

    And thanks for the really clear step by step instructions that I think event the newest user could cope with.

    I think this is the same thing as the gui method for clearing the old .deb packages out of synatic. I use it often.

    sudo rm -f /var/cache/apt/archives/*.deb

    Yes me too! I go in there (/var/cache/apt/archives) quite often...but thanks again for the howto.

    The first time I used WackToMac's how to I ran

    Code:
    sudo deborphan | xargs sudo apt-get -y remove --purge
    as indicated in Tip #4 but never did dare again ever since because, as I recall, it messed things up for me.
