Whenever I use Ubuntu tweak's janitor to clear caches and I select all the files I want to delete and click "clean" nothing happens. (See the screenshot below) This has only began since I upgraded from 12.10 to 13.04.

Did you re-enable the ppa (it is deactivated after upgrade) and install the newest version? – Donarsson Apr 27 '13 at 0:13
No I haven't. How would I do that? – Brenton Horne Apr 27 '13 at 0:26
Open Software-Updates. In settings, go to "Other Software" and enable the ppa. Then run sudo apt-get update in a terminal. – Donarsson Apr 27 '13 at 0:42

As Donarsson pointed out in his comment, I think you just need to update. Ubuntu Tweak works fine for me in 13.04.

In a terminal, type these commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/ppa
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

This failed to fix the problem. I am still unable to clean my system with janitor – Brenton Horne Apr 27 '13 at 1:03
The only other thing I could suggest is purging the program and reinstalling it. Sorry that didn't work out. – Aibara Iduas Apr 27 '13 at 1:19
Unfortunately, that didn't work either. – Brenton Horne Apr 27 '13 at 1:47
