How to install Bleachbit on Ubuntu via command line

The Bleachbit is the best CCleaner alternative for Ubuntu and other Linux operating systems such as CentOS, Debian, Fedora, RedHat, SLE, and OpenSuse. As we know the CCleaner is one of the best software to clean junk files but it is not available for Linux, in such case the Bleachbit would be the best option to try if you are on Ubuntu. We are using Ubuntu here because it is a common Linux OS that all beginners use on & off and install lots of software to try out the Linux power. And certainly, it also leaves lots of junked, temporary, cache, browser history and other crap which we need to clean intermittently; manually or using some kind of third party software like Bleachbit. So, let’s see how to install the Bleachbit on Ubuntu.
