    Question New in this forum and Ubuntu and I hate cookies

    Hello, my name is Camelia, I am from Mexico City, AND I just install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

    My first concern is how to clean my System, I do not know yet what garbage I can clean, but for sure Logs and Cookies (I should have tons of them using Google Chrome and Firefox because I have been browsing like there is not tomorrow but I haven't installed nothing from Ubuntu Software Center yet )

    So, I search and I found 2 options:

    • BleachBit
    • Ubuntu Cleaner


    Which one do you suggest me?
    Can I install 2 Junk Cleaners?

    If you have a better option please let me know

    Thanks
    Camelia

    Welcome.

    I recommend neither.

    Stacer is newer, effective, has a nice GUI and very easy to use. Included in Ubuntu 20.04 repositories so no need to add the PPA as instructed in the webpage.

    Meanwhile here are a few suggestions for really delicious cookies: https://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/...baking/cookie/

    Thank you!

    Can I know what is wrong with


    • BleachBit
    • Ubuntu Cleaner ?



    Is Stacer in the Ubuntu store?

    I don't know how to install via Terminal, Using this command will do it?

    sudo add-apt-repository ppaguzhaninan/stacer
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install stacer
    Thanks for the suggestions for really delicious cookies

    Stacer is in the repositories therefore available at the Ubuntu store. And can be installed simply with 'sudo apt install stacer', no need to add the PPA, it's only for older Ubuntu releases.

    There's no fundamental problem with the tools you asked about except when you don't really know what you're doing and end up deleting more thing than you should.

    I use this method and have zero complaints.

    If you want to clear browser cookies, right-click on any page, select inspect, and select the storage tab (FireFox and Chrome/Chromium.) You can delete all cookies from there.

    Also I have set my browsers to disable all third party cookies, these are the ones that track your movements across multiple web sites. It only "breaks" a small set of sites IME. I have one site it breaks, a mortgage e-signing site, I enable all cookies just for that site.

    Note that clearing cookies will sometimes clear the cookies that keep you logged in to some web sites.

    Are you low on space?

    I can also suggest removing old unused kernels

    If you go to System Settings>Privacy you can adjust some of the settings of the Ubuntu operating system itself.

    Welcome Camelia. I've used Bleachbit in the past and it caused no problems I was aware of. Others have had Bleachbit work too well and delete things it shouldn't. Bleachbit will permit you to choose what to delete and if you want to delete them completely or I think you can keep keep deleted files in temporary storage until you're sure you didn't delete anything important.

    I don not like to store cookies, what about the tracking cookies? I want them all away from my system!
