bleachbit not running

i am using Debian Squeeze and for some confusing reason bleach-bit isn't running when i try to execute it from the applications menu then i tried to execute it from the command line
and this is what i came back with
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/bleachbit", line 31, in <module>
    import pygtk
ImportError: No module named pygtk
according to the prompt pygtk isn't installed but i went to the packages on the Debian website and found them

i had to install numby because earlier when i tried installing it the terminal told me that it was missing a dependency called python-numby

and i tried running it from the command line and it still sends me the same message so what did i do wrong here. on top of that the synaptic package manager told me that there was a broken package so i'm guessing that the python-numby package didn't install correctly so what happened here i need to run bleachbit because my hardrive is running out of space

sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install --reinstall bleachbit
I don't know why when you originally installed bleachbit, all the required dependencies were not pulled in.
