Often I am facing one and the same issue - deleting backup folder of Picasa. There are usually lots of rotated images or movies. So usually this is the first place to search for free space. Here is one very short way to delete these subdirectories: cd ~/Pictures find . -iname '.picasaoriginals' -exec rm -rf '{}' \; This will remove all subdirectories from your “Pictures” folder that have name .

I have decided today to clean up my old Lenovo T60 - I was missing space for my son’s movies. Decided - I chose Ubuntu Linux, because I have already tried it for so many times, and I know that it usually installs smoothly. So I downloaded 11.04 Desktop edition. I burned it on CD, backup child movies from Windows Machine T60, and started the install. It ran for not more than 30 min, and everything was there - browser, torrent client, games.
