Okay, this is entirely my fault, I had not checked or been looking for it. I liked baobab very much on dapper.
baobab is a
GNOME graphical tool performing real-time disk usage analysis, completing information given by
df -h in CLI. I had tried to install it on edgy :
~ $ aptitude show baobab E: /home/isabella/.aptitude/config - Unable to open %s for writing (13 Permission denied) No candidate version found for baobab Package: baobab State: not a real package
baobab on edgy :-(
df -h is okay with me, but some people I help on forums prefer graphical tools. In addition, information about disk usage is not displayed in the same way.
df shows free available space on mounted file systems as a percentage of total space (see
man df) when
baobab shows real-time percentage of disk usage by each file system. In adition,
baobab can scan remote file systems, on another computer or on a server through ssh, ftp, smb, http or https.
I was reading news, planets and blogs this morning when I came across debian admin entry regarding > Accessories > Disk Usage Analyser. You may have to use > System > Preferences > Menu Layout to add it to the menu. There it was, I recognized
baobab interface \o/
