If I were you I use /usr/local/bin for scripts like that. It does not matter so much but you can see easily which one you added....

    You cannot delete anything wrong if you use the appropriate permissions ? So I suggest you do it as normal user. Also, keeping your home dir tidy (and your executable directories) can help a lot too .

    I haven't, but it looks promising.

    If you want the Debian repository:

    deb http://repos.knio.it/ stable main contrib non-free
    deb-src http://repos.knio.it/ stable main contrib non-free

    ok i gave it a shot ... and it is pretty nifty... although it doesnt have anything for deleting internet cache and tmp files... (i am still leary of doing anything as all those files seem to have little locks on them) but it seems pretty powerful ... of course i like that it doesnt make you delete anything just look at things you MIGHT want to delete... thanks for the advice

    Is there a similar tool for Fedora Core 4.0 [ I am still afraid of the console and thus far I haven't written my first script ] I would like to erase those tmp files that I can erase as user not as root so how do I modify that script?

    Hmmm... with KDE I normally use the trite:

    Code:
    yum clean all
    But I am wondering how to clean logs generated by Gaim, and temporary files...

    I am afraid of scripting things that have the rm command... I am just scared and if anything happens I would feel very, very bad
