  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time,

dpkg-clean 2.0.0


Even with apt purge, dependent packages aren't fully purged most of the time and can leave behind unnecessary config files. This script is a python wrapper for python-apt that polls for orphaned configs and presents you with a simple menu allowing you to remove (or keep) them at leisure.

Ok, this thing auto-magically cleaned up to 1GB of residual files :3 Love it. Thanks Dev!
Glad to hear it!
I followed the install instructions and succesfully completed them. When I try and run sudo dpkg-clean I get a message that says: sudo: dpkg-clean: command not found
Any suggestions?
Assuming you're running Pop, did you restart the shell?
I've been using evertiro's dpkg-clean in one form or another for a long time. It has always worked well, done what it is meant to do and never borked. I like to keep my system lean and clean, so this tool is mighty helpful.
