What about including (by default) a cleaning tool for LinuxMint system? I mean a tool like BleachBit

if you could get 10 to 30 gigabytes of free space, then perhaps it would be useful..
and i never seen linux make so much garbage as windows. so if it were windows and ccleaner then i could understand.
and there was problems with ubuntu when BleachBit was used with root access.

Not keen on Bleachkit, as it has been known to erase files that aren't rubbish.

@Shin BleachBit will not free up any space. It will overwrite the already freed disk space with a random bit pattern thus making it slightly harder to retrieve the deleted files.

@larmi: so, do you think more free space is not a benefit?

6 votes and 0 score while I'm writing this, it would be good if people who Demoted this can comment here if they know an other app better than bleachbit, to let us know :)

I agree 100%. Bleach bit should be a default program.
