Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Profile Cleaner is a script that reduces the size of the browser profiles by reindexing the functions and organizing the sqlite databases, via sqlite3′s vaccum. It has support for the most popular browsers and email client, including: Firefox, Chrome, Chromium, Konqueror, Midori, SeaMonkey, Thunderbird, TOR and Newsbeuter.
The latest version available is Profile Cleaner 2.30.1, which has been recently released.
In this article I will show you how to install Profile Cleaner 2.30.1 on Fedora 20 and Fedora 19.
Because it is not available via any repository, we have to download it from github and perform an installation from sources. Like this:
$ sudo yum install bash bc findutils parallel sqlite
$ wget github.com/graysky2/profile-cleaner/archive/master.zip
$ unzip master.zip
$ cd profile-cleaner-master
$ sudo make install
Optional, to remove profile-cleaner, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove profile-cleaner
