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

thank you reed, much appreciated. how would i go about locating python 2.5? i have 3.1 and 2.7 installed currently. there only seems to be 2.7 in the arch package database. thanks.
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.
it worked fine, but for some reason changing it to the python2 interpreter did not work. however, running
does work. i am not sure why one would work but the other does not. well anyway it is fixed now. thanks.
