bleachbit


is there an alternative to bleachbit for RHEL/CentOS? something that is more suitable for shell instead of GUI?
as it is, bleachbit has too many dependencies (using 'nongui' CentOS).
thanks.

Why do you think you need something like bleachbit? Most of its activity is concerned with things that build up in the GUI, especially in connection with browsers.

There is a command-line version, but make sure you understand it: sometimes it goes too far, and then you're in trouble!

Perhaps something like Shred is more appropriate?

thank you.
i'm not worried much about privacy, more about security (ok, those two are related).
I'd like to free some space, keep only needed files, so that system is 'simpler', faster, easier to backup and understand.

Bleachbit, for the most part (as far as my experience with it goes), will be of no help in that if you have no GUI. It is about removing things like temporary web browser files and the like which are not present on command-line only installs.
