    Temp Files


    Does Linux store temp files that need cleaned out all the time? Especially Internet files? If so, where are they at? Thanks.

    Hi - in /tmp as opposed to anything you might have in /home/bower/tmp (assuming you created such a directory).

    Personally I leave my /tmp directory alone... It's worth looking in /var/tmp for where programmes store files that are used after booting up. This might come in handy.

    For firefox, check:
    Code:
    ls -d ~/.mozilla/firefox/*.default/Cache/
    directory.

    Or in browser, type:
    Code:
    about:cache
    and then follow the link to "List Cache Entries".
