Subject description: Duplicate file finder

FSlint is a utility to find and clean various forms of lint on a filesystem.
I.E. unwanted or problematic cruft in your files or file names.
For example, one form of lint it finds is duplicate files.
It has both GUI and command line modes.

The dependencies:
Python from devx_xx.sfs
PyGTK from http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=80464

There is the problem with menu entry described here http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=86746 which is automatically changed, so you need to change it after the installation.

This is an SFS file of FSlint_2.42-2_all
for 32-bit systems

FSlint can be run either as a GUI or from the command line.
Please see the link to the pdf manual at bottom of this post for details.

FSlint is an excellent duplicate file finder and cleaner that is simple to use.
The sfs puts a menu entry in Filesystem named FSlint
I built this because I was having trouble getting the original package posted in this thread to run in a late model puppy.
The SFS includes the needed python dependencies and requires no additional packages for the following 32-bit puppy versions
It will also run in puppy precise-5.7.1 using the devx.

Exclamation It also includes the correct python dependencies to run the the latest bleachbit 2.0 that was compiled by festus

built from

File size 3.47MB
md5--> 6e4150021cda1133563aff4a530538e3

The Fslint User Guide
Download the userguide as pdf file

The FAQ can be found here

A web page with some info can be viewed here
Navigate the menu on the left side of page.

Its pretty amazing how many duplicates I have in my archived hard drives.
The option to search recursively(top-right ticbox) is especially useful as I don't always want to look at all sub-directories when searching for duplicates.
If nothing else this utility will show you how much disk space you are wasting by just taking a look at your drives/directories
If you are searching big files or many thousands of files the search will take some time as it uses md5 and sha1 hashing to identify files,
Take a glimpse at the FAQ and download the manual for specifics, this is simple to use or can be as complex as needed for identifying, merging, or deleting files.
In the pic I posted there are over 6GB of duplicate files just in my downloads directory & subdirectories by searching only that directory recursively.
You can add multiple directories in the search box and get some complex comparisons, or accidently find all those duplicated .mp3 files Smile

Here is everything Fslint can find.
Duplicate files
Broken symlinks
Empty directories
Temporary files
Problem filenames
Nonstripped binaries

Not to scare, just to warn against deleting stuff unintentially because once its deleted - its gone.
Fslint has the potential to damage your puppy install if you tell it to delete important system files. Exclamation
If you are not certain about the files you are deleting then do not delete them Exclamation
