comment Using a cronjob to clean /tmp
Its not, its just simpler to use and the arguments used are more understandable. A simple rm -rf on a list of files returned by find would do the job also. This is "just another way", not even saying is the best one, just the one I use on the servers I setup.

comment “module load” command does not work
module is a tool used to change tool and libs version from one to the other, much like virtualenv is to python, but instead it changes your paths and variables to reflect other setups, eg: module load gcc-4.8 will load gcc-4.8, module load gcc-4.7 will load 4.7, etc

Yes that is all true and relevant, even for the zillions of tools that are common to all the Linux distros out there, but org.cinnamon.keybindings.custom-keybindings is Mint specific and does not exist in Ubuntu.

The same libs will be used after installation, so it will not be multiples of the library. Only one installation by package.
