    [SOLVED] System cleaner.


    since arch has started using python3, bleachbit is broken, so i am looking for a system cleaner to replace it. i need something that will overwrite file contents and clear firefox cache + the all the normal functions of a system cleaner.

    any suggestions? i am using gnome.


    Thanks.

    So, Do you have Python 2.x installed on your system by default or no?

    Hello,

    Please read the news section of the Arch Linux homepage.

    Arch Linux - News: Python is now Python 3

    Python2 is moved into its own package in Extra.

    Bleachbit-svn in the AUR correctly lists the dependencies as python>=2 and <=2.5.

    You should install the Python 2.x, and It might fix the issue right away. As most of the Python programmers mention their interpreter explicitly.

    Hmm, well now, I didn't read it closely, but yes, 2.7 is the current version in extra.

    However, I just installed bleachbit-svn from the AUR to check it out and it works fine for me. Does it not work for you?

    hmm, yes sorry it does. when i initially created a launcher for it, i ran the gui script like so.

    Code:
    python /scr/python/bleachbit-0.8.0/bleachbit/GUI.py
    it worked fine, but for some reason changing it to the python2 interpreter did not work. however, running

    Code:
    python2 /scr/python/bleachbit-0.8.0/bleachbit.py
    does work. i am not sure why one would work but the other does not. well anyway it is fixed now. thanks.
