Stacer: a good substitute for CCleaner for Linux


You sure know the program Windows CCleaner, which helps to clean the system, eliminate duplicate files, cache, some startup programs, and repair the registry among other options. Well, we have also told you many times about an alternative for Linux called BleachBit which is quite practical to free up disk space by erasing some expendable data from the system that can become annoying and take up a lot of space on the hard disk without needing it.

Well, there is another good alternative to CCleaner and also to BleachBit that you can use in Linux, and it also has a good and intuitive GUI for handling. I speak of the application Stacer. The first thing we find is its Dashboard, a graphical interface with information about the use of the CPU, RAM memory, hard disk use, etc., with simple colored graphics. A general information of the system that never hurts to know, although as you know there are many other ways to obtain it and other specific programs for it.

The second interesting feature of Satacer is the well-known System Cleaner. It is in this section where there are options similar to those of CCleaner and Bleachbit, with the possibility of clearing app cache, problem reports, system logs, etc. You can select what you want to scan and after the analysis you will find the data that you can erase so that with a simple click, remove it from the system and recover space on the hard disk. If we go to the section Startup AppsIt will also remind us of CCleaner, allowing disabling the startup of certain applications during system startup, which speeds up startup ...

There are also sections like Services and Unisnstaller, the first to see the services that are active and to be able to activate or deactivate them graphically and easily, while the second is aimed at uninstalling unnecessary software from our system. As you can see, it is very complete, more than Bleachbit, which only eliminates cache data and other types of applications. Therefore, we can say that Stacer is more similar to CCleaner ...

    When trying to install it with the Ubuntu Software Center, it warns me that the installer file is of poor quality, so it gives me a choice whether to install it or I notify the developers that the file does not meet quality standards.

    jajajajajjajajajja and who said that linux needs that, buajajjajaj if linux self-cleans itself, when you turn off the makina and turn it on again or you renounce it, in that way it cleans itself

      I think you are quite confused ... Are you sure the cache clears itself? Take a test and you will realize your mistake.

    This Stacer is very lazy, after running it, I run Bleachbit and it always cleans something that Stacer doesn't clean. I stay with Bleachbit.
