Description:

KleanSweep allows you to reclaim disk space by finding unneeded files. It can search for files basing on several criterias; you can seek for:
* empty files
* empty directories
* backup files
* broken symbolic links
* broken executables
* dead menu entries (.desktop files pointing to non-existing executables)
* obsolete thumbnails (thumbnails of non-existing images)
* duplicated files
* orphaned files (files not found in RPM or DEB database).

Results for each criteria are shown in separate tab; files may appear on many tabs if they match many criterias - in this case they are "linked", so you have to mark (or unmark) file for deletion only once! Before actual deletion takes place, you're given an option to create backup archive.

Planned features:
* seeking for orphaned files in Slackware and Gentoo (portage) database
* and more!

KleanSweep consists of KDE-based (C++) graphical frontend and small helper Perl script that performs actual searching. All searches, except for orphaned files, duplicates and dead menu entries are as fast as usual 'find' would be.

This is initial release and may contain bugs. I take no responsibility for any damage caused by this program.

Note: it may compile/work in KDE < 3.4.x, but was only tested in 3.4.2.

I'll consider it. Not a bad idea, however I'm not sure if I should duplicate browser's functions (the browsers offer option to clear the cache and keep the cache within certain size). Anyway, thanks, we'll see...

I just noticed I accidently placed kleansweep-helper script in wrong directory ($PREFIX/sbin). As a result kleansweep can't find it. Please manually move kleansweep-helper from $PREFIX/sbin to $PREFIX/bin ($PREFIX is the installation prefix, e.g. /usr), this should fix the problem. It will be fixed in next version.

Suggestion:

User accounts sometimes appear in central username-password databases such as NIS or LDAP. A nice feature would be to have it obtain a list of valid users from a configurable source and look for any home directories, mail boxes, etc that should be deleted from accounts that no longer exist.

Just my $0.02
