Positive Comment by brinerustle about K4DirStat Also mentioning: WinDirStat Jun 2014

There is a MS Windows clone called WinDirStat. Yes, that one is the clone. KDirStat is the original.


Wanted to try kdirstat on ubuntu 10.04, but conflicted with pidgin, and didn't want to resolve that in order to install it:

sdoskurd@sdoux0072 (review_9849) Contacts $ sudo apt-get install kdirstat
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
kdirstat: Depends: kdelibs4c2a (>= 4:3.5.8-1) but it is not going to be installed
pidgin: Depends: pidgin-data (>= 1:2.7.9) but 1:2.7.7-1ubuntu0+pidgin1.10.04 is to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
