How Do You Delete Duplicate Files?

Asked by MrCHill on 2008-06-03

In Itunes there is an application for finding duplicates of song files, making it easier to delete them. is there an application like that in Rhythmbox? How can i use it?

also, is there a shortcut for deleting a file? my delete button doesn't seem to work when I've highlighted the file.

sorry if i sound whiny-

thanks

Install:
sudo apt-get install fslint

That has a good GUI and removed duplicate files.

 I ran fslint and discovered 6Gig of duplicate files!........Can I get into strife if I just delete them all?

I was only searching duplicates in my music box but have discovered hundreds of duplicate application files.
