Finally I have setup my own launchpad PPA (, installing ubuntu-cleaner became much more easier. Also updates are handled automatically with apt.

If you want to add my ppa just type in your terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gerardpuig/ppa

Then you can fetch updates and install the package:
sudo apt update && sudo apt install ubuntu-cleaner

I'm proud to announce the first version of Ubuntu Cleaner, a package that most of you will recognize from Ubuntu Tweak.

Since Ubuntu Tweak got deprecated -as his main developer did not have time to maintain it- I decided to fork the janitor module and bring back that useful functionality to the Ubuntu community. I will maintain the package on each new Ubuntu version to ensure it works as expected as well as adding new plugins for other common apps.

Ubuntu Cleaner is a public repository and everyone is invited to contribute via pull requests. You can find it on

Current version is 1.0.0 and it has been tested on Ubuntu 14.04 and 16.04 (LTS). It should also work in other versions. Currently there is no ppa yet, so it is only available via direct download.

Install instructions (to make sure dependencies are also installed)
sudo dpkg -i ubuntu-cleaner_1.0.0-1_all.deb
sudo apt install -f
