Re: profile-cleaner reduces browser profile size by cleaning/reindexing

@graysky

Sorry that I was posting on the wrong thread.

v.1.95 of profile-cleaner works if psd is not running. Per your request here is what my profile.ini looks like

[General]
StartWithLastProfile=1

[Profile0]
Name=default
IsRelative=1
Path=xxxxxxxx.default

I'm not sure if it's appropiate to post my profile id here so I just back them out here.

and after psd started, issuing "profile-cleaner f" resulted in

profile-cleaner v1.95

 Cleaning profile for firefox
cat: /tmp/work2do.firefox: No such file or directory

grep: /tmp/accounting.firefox: No such file or directory
Profile(s) for firefox reduced by  Mbytes.

I do think I changed anything and it was working in versions earlier than 1.94.

Thank for looking into this issue

@burninate - Those warning should not appear in v1.90... I now not sure why you get nothing upon cleaning though...?

Apparently, my problem was caused by a full root partition:

~/.mozilla/firefox/q7h6g1lf.default ⇨ for i in *.sqlite; do sqlite3 $i vacuum; sqlite3 $i reindex; done
Error: database or disk is full
Error: database or disk is full
...
~ ⇨ df -h
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
rootfs          9,7G  9,4G     0 100% /
.. (*face-palm-slap-moment*)

After resizing rootfs the profile-cleaner worked like a charm:

 ...
 Profile for chromium reduced by 8.85 Mbytes.
 ...
 Profile(s) for firefox reduced by 32.14 Mbytes.

Re: profile-cleaner reduces browser profile size by cleaning/reindexing

@burninate - Glad you figured it out.
@pingpong - Not sure what is causing your issue.  Try version 1.96-1.

Re: profile-cleaner reduces browser profile size by cleaning/reindexing

Just some minor nag. The colors are nearly unreadable on a light background terminal. I use to change them to this:

# colors for light background display (using blue instead of yellow)
export BLD="\e[01m" RED="\e[00;31m" GRN="\e[00;32m" YLW="\e[00;34m" NRM="\e[00m"

Having this line (commented) in the code would save me some extra editing effort on every new update. Or even have some option to switch between color sets.

Secondly, I use to run several nonstandard midori profiles like:

bp:~/.config$ ls -d midori*
midori  midori-player  midori-reader

Some means to let the script know which folder to work on would be useful.


To know or not to know ...
... the questions remain forever.

Re: profile-cleaner reduces browser profile size by cleaning/reindexing

@bernarcher -
1) Good idea.  I will implement this later today and post when ready.
2) Good idea.  Let me think about how best to handle it.  Pull requests welcomed smile

Re: profile-cleaner reduces browser profile size by cleaning/reindexing

@bernarcher
For #1) Plz try version 1.97-1.  Run it once then edit $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/profile-cleaner.conf 
For #2) Aesiris added support for user defined profiles via the 'p' option.  See the new manpage for an example.

Re: profile-cleaner reduces browser profile size by cleaning/reindexing

I have both firefox-nightly and google-chrome-dev from AUR. Profile-cleaner works wonderfully with "f" but can't correctly locate the profile directory of "gcd". The binary has been renamed to google-chrome-unstable in that package for reasons I don't know.

@Vrantheo - I can adjust it but this will be a pain in the ass if the name keeps changing.

Re: profile-cleaner reduces browser profile size by cleaning/reindexing

If I have psd.service already running and I run profile-cleaner, will it have any effect since it modifies the profile in /home but the profile is already loaded in RAM and then the profile in RAM will replace the changes in home???

Re: profile-cleaner reduces browser profile size by cleaning/reindexing

Yes, profile-cleaner and psd work well together.  When psd.service is active, profile-cleaner will honor the symlink and clean the tmpfs profiles.  When you deactivate psd.service, they are then sync'ed back to disk.  The disk-bound backup copy is not modified but when psd.service is disabled, it is deleted.

IIRC it's Google that did the name change quite a while ago. The upstream URL is https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/goog … _arch}.deb

I don't know if other Linux distros forcefully rename it back while packaging. Maybe you could at least patch it specifically for AUR or something.

Re: profile-cleaner reduces browser profile size by cleaning/reindexing

@graysky

first off, thanks for this awesome tool.
i just noticed ( am getting friendly with qupzilla ) that your script cannot detect qupzilla's profile directory correctly as it now resides in ~/.config/qupzilla.
i modified your script to reflect (recent? ) change in qupzilla, it now is able to find it but hardly cleans anything.
If you have time please fix this.

Thanks

Re: profile-cleaner reduces browser profile size by cleaning/reindexing

Dunno about why it hardly cleans anything... just installed it myself for testing purposes and updated the script to match the new profile location.  Try 2.32-1.

% pc q
profile-cleaner v2.32

 Cleaning profile for qupzilla
 Cleaning browsedata.db                        done  -0 Mbytes

 Profile(s) for qupzilla reduced by 0 Mbytes.

Re: profile-cleaner reduces browser profile size by cleaning/reindexing

@graysky

Thanks for the quick modification, latest script is perfect

( when I wrote "hardly cleans anything" I meant " Cleaning browsedata.db done  -0 Mbytes Profile(s) for qupzilla reduced by 0 Mbytes. " but it's OK  and asking for a fix was because of the incorrect path )

Thanks

Hi. Opera uses sqlite databases if you feel like adding it to profile-cleaner. Regards
