Bug Description

Binary package hint: computer-janitor

There are some pretty obvious bugs in Computer Janitor.

An area that should be white is gray when there is nothing there.

The padding of the word "unused" is set incorrectly. See attachment.

No bleachbit is far too potent and dangerous for the default install.

Apart from that, the janitor should really be removed from Ubuntu. The program can break third party packages which is a well known problem.

Hm, I don't see a bug report for this -- do you have details for this?

c-j seems to work quite well for me for the few cases when I've tried it, but I don't use a lot of PPAs and third-party repos. I checked its bug list, and it looks quite reasonable (most are UI bugs, nothing scary like "broke my system").

However, c-j does not have a current maintainer right now, unless it got absorbed by the foundation team. So the question whether we should keep it in the default installation is legitimate.

I mailed u-devel for discussing the removal:
