howto: setup and configure bleachbit to run from the cli

bleachbit is a system cleaner for linux. or it originally started out that way and now it is also available for windows.

the home page states: BleachBit quickly frees disk space and tirelessly guards your privacy.

it started out as a gui only program and then a cli was added. so how to use bleachbit from the cli ? well there are 2 methods

method 1

requires that you run

bleachbit --help;bleachbit --list

to figure out which cleaners you want to use and with what options.

method 2

is to start the gui, select your cleaners and options from there then run it at least once so the presets are saved. and finally from crontab you can run

bleachbit -d --preset
