    use bleach bit (root) to clean your system often, untill you reinstall with a better partition scheme.

    If you know what you are doing, bleachbit can be very useful, but it can also be dangerous especially in the hands of new users who are unfamiliar with Linux. Example: it will delete old kernels that could be useful to fall back on if new updates break the OS. I would recommend that new users temporarily avoid both bleachbit and computer janitor until they are more familiar with the OS. Ubuntu does not accumulate nearly as much cruft as Windows and does not need to be cleaned with the same vigour, which is what bleachbit and computer janitor were designed for.

    If you are forced to delete files using gksudo nautilus, then a simple method to bypass the trash altogether is to select the file and use <Shift>+<Delete>. This key combo has the same effect as
    Code:
    sudo rm -f
    but without the dangers of the command line (which gives you no view of the actual files you are deleting). This is a far better way for new users to delete permanently. However, be forewarned that any file deleted this way is not retrievable because it has not been shuffled off to the trash.
