Stacer – A System Optimizer And Clean Up Utility For Linux
Stacer is an open source system optimizer and Application Monitor that helps users to manage entire system with different aspects. The app will prompt you to enter the

In straight forward, it’s doing many activity instead of specific one, so we can say in another hand, its all in one system utility.
- Dashboard : Display the system information & current system resource usage.
- System Cleaner : Helps users to clean the variety of system caches, Its work similar to Ubuntu system cleaner and bleachbit.
- Startup Apps : We can easily add, enable & disable startup applications.
- Services : Easily enable & disable system services.
- Uninstaller : Remove the unused applications through stacer.
- Resources : We can see the detailed graph about CPU, Memory & Network utilization.
How to Install Stacer in Debian base
