Smile Remove temp files at shutdown.

Here's how I remove temporary internet files at shutdown in 7.04.

First of all we need to make a backup of our sysklogd file, to do this type this in at the terminal:

sudo cp /etc/init.d/sysklogd /etc/init.d/sysklogd_backup

Next we need to edit that same file:

gksudo gedit /etc/init.d/sysklogd

Once your editor opens the file scroll down to the stop) section and enter this at the bottom of that section:

rm -fr /tmp/* /tmp/.??* see below
log_begin_msg "Stopping system log daemon..."
start-stop-daemon --stop --quiet --pidfile $pidfile --name syslogd
log_end_msg $?
rm -fr /tmp/* /tmp/.??*

Save the file and close, now when you reboot your temp files will be deleted.

Isn't the /tmp folder cleaned up automatically when you reboot? At least it's like that on Debian.
