I was particularly glad a few weeks ago when Red Hat community engineer Rahul Sundaram wrote me:
Just a heads up that I have imported Bleachbit into the Fedora (rawhide- fedora development branch, Fedora 11, Fedora 10) and EPEL 5 repository
EPEL is a add-on repository for RHEL/Centos et all
For about five years I myself have been using Fedora as my primary operating system (since switching from Mandrake before it became Mandriva), and BleachBit is my second software package in Fedora.
Anyway, Rahul wrote me weeks ago, but finally today BleachBit 0.5.4 (a little old) finally worked its way from the testing area to the standard repository, so installing is as easy as:
sudo yum install bleachbit
If you prefer the graphical interface, it works just as well:
To install the latest version (0.6.0), download it from BleachBit Downloads. It seems Fedora and Ubuntu have similar policies regarding freezing versions of software. This policy generally makes sense, though it has left an ancient version of BleachBit (0.3.1) in Ubuntu 9.04 because BleachBit has rapidly matured this year.
