I am new a Linux (about 7 months). I had always used Bleachbit to keep my system clean after large updates. I had read on this forum, where it could do harm if not used cautiously. I thought I was. I did not enable some options that warned caution.
After hundreds of uses I had no trouble, until TODAY.
I always use the "Preview" mode to show just what is to be cleaned, and all looked ok, BUT a little bit after cleaning, I noticed that all the Libre Office icons were gone from Mint Menu. Sure enough all of Libre Office and also Evolution mail were GONE! Nowhere on the system.
It was easy enough to reinstall, and all was back to normal, as the config files must have remained behind. All except for Evolution Mail. All my mail was gone. I had a backup from a month back, and restored that.
I want to keep my sytem clean, but am hesistant to use Bleachbit.
What are some terminal commands that I can use to keep this system clean?
