Graphical Disk Representation

This weekend I tried Gnome on Debian unstable to see how the compiz window manager and other new stuff was working. I’m currently use pekwm. After a few hours of usage, I reverted back to my current desktop.

On the way I found out a two things:

  1. You should remove the package files that are downloaded by aptitude. I collected about 7 GB of .deb packages. You can clean this up by using the command: apt-get autoclean.
  2. Gnome contains a nice Graphics Disk Usage Analyzer called baobab. It shows the amount of diskspace a file or directory uses in a graphical representation.
