CLEANING JUNK FILES IN DEEPIN
ANDn Windows and other operating systems junk file cleaning applications are very popular due to the ease with which they SOs they save that type of files. Although in Linux the situation is much better in that respect, still here it is necessary to clean from time to time.
These files that are temporarily created by the applications we use or that are left behind by application installers or system updates can over time take up precious disk space. This is important for those of us who have HDDs but even more so for those who have a SSD since usually the space of these is even more limited.
Deepin like most of the distros It does not have a default installed tool dedicated to this goal. Many new Linux users sometimes wonder what is the best way to ensure that their system is clean of all the unnecessary garbage that usually accumulates as we use the system.
First of all, we must be fair and say that although the graphical interface does not have this possibility, our old friend «the terminal» offers the possibility of cleaning much of the unnecessary through the command:
sudo apt autoremove
This command, however, sometimes does not reach all the places where some of those little things that are there unnecessarily are hidden, so we present you Stacer, the # 1 system cleaning tool on Linux.
To start a cleaning with Stacer just fire the app from your app launcher once installed Stacer (Sigue leyendo para conocer cómo obtenerlo e instalarlo en deepin). Es fácil de localizar pues se creará un icono en el lanzador como en el ejemplo abajo.
From the main application window select the "Cleaning tab" and make sure that you select all the search options as in the example below, then press the magnifying glass icon:
So Stacer It will show you all possibilities of saving disk space. In that same window select all the options in which you want to free up space and click on the duster icon to start cleaning the system.
GETTING IN Deepin Stacer
Stacer it is always available in the store, but usually not in its latest version, so we recommend you get our complementary repository Deepines which you can download and install from the button below where we always have the latest application update available.
After installing Deepines, proceed to install Stacer by opening a terminal and executing the following commands:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install stacer
My advice is that after or before using Stacer also use the command for «autoremove»Of which we speak above at least once every three or four months to complement Stacer.
Greetings and happy cleaning Linuxera!
