Install on Linux
To install BleachBit, first download the latest installation package for your system.
BleachBit requires Python 2.5, 2.6, or 2.7 (not 3) and GTK+ version 2 (not 3). There is an experimental branch with support for GTK+3.
Ubuntu, Mint, and Debian
Double click on the downloaded installation package which has a name like bleachbit_1.6_all_ubuntu1404.deb. Then, follow the prompts.
Alternatively, install using the command line like this:
sudo dpkg -i bleachbit_1.6_all_ubuntu1404.deb
Installing using apt from the distribution’s repositories is not recommended because they tend to be old releases of BleachBit.
Fedora, Red Hat, CentOS
Graphical package manager
To install BleachBit using the graphic package manager, double click on the downloaded installation package which has a name like bleachbit-1.4-1.1.fc20.noarch.rpm. Then, follow the prompts.
Alternatively, install using the command line like this.
While installing the public key is not required (a missing key can be ignored), it is recommended to verify the authenticity of the downloaded files. Without importing the key you may see the following error: “Signature verification failed [4-Signatures public key is not available].” Installing the key is required only once (in other words, not every time you install or upgrade BleachBit). This command downloads and imports the public key:
wget http://bleachbit.sourceforge.net/bleachbit_public.key -O /tmp/bleachbit_public.key
sudo rpm --import /tmp/bleachbit_public.key
The following command installs BleachBit using the command line:
sudo rpm -Uvh bleachbit-1.4-1.1.fc20.noarch.rpm
