comment CCleaner equivalent?
In Ubuntu and Debian's repository the version of BleachBit is often ancient, so you may want to grab fresh .deb installer files from the official BleachBit site

comment Strange directory generated in home by Bleachbit, will it cause problems?
What is "other components were acting strangely"? Why were you forced to restart? Maybe you just didn't wait long enough to delete the directory. Other than using BleachBit, did you do other system changes recently? There is an option System - Memory that cleans memory and fills up the memory the way you described ("memory usage up to 97%"), and I think this is separate from the directory that is hard to delete. Finally, I recommend upgrading BleachBit because it sounds like you have an ancient version, which is typical for Ubuntu's repositories.

comment “No protocol specified , Could not open X display” error when Running bleachbit as root on KDE
As noted in the bug, BleachBit version 1.6 adds a warning for the option KDE - Temporary Files. The bug ticket also explains when this is an issue.

comment Is there a way to make sure my system will boot before I reboot? I just ran bleachbit
@jondoe The worse thing that will happen if you abort during "[wipe] free disk space" is there may be files you need to manually delete. BleachBit version 1.2 made it less likely they are left behind and made it easier to delete them.

comment bleachbit get crushed previweing and cleaning these paths
The files shown in the log are the paths that are done, so the path that is working on is not yet shown. For diagnosing the problem a good next step is previewing one path at a time, and what is the option that "gets crushed"? Does "get crushed" means high CPU usage, high disk usage, non-responsive GUI, or something else? Which version of BleachBit?

comment Cant cd into a directory that exists that was created by bleach-bit
Did you try rebooting? Which file system? Which version of BleachBit? Old version of BleachBit (still in recent distributions of Ubuntu, maybe 14.10) create a folder with roughly a million empty files, which takes an extremely long time to delete on the standard Ubuntu file system.

The symptoms and resolution seem unrelated to BleachBit, but if it is reproducible, please report a bug with the BleachBit version and options used
