hi, how can i clear the tmp files in fedora 17 xfce, can any one suggest any comments?

can i use the following commands? i got his when surfing google, but i am scared to use those. I want to clean manually, i dont want to run any automatic commands while booting or at shut down

find /tmp -mtime +10 |xargs rm -f

find /tmp -type d | xargs rmdir

I'd recommend you take a look at this question: it even suggests a way to link this to shutdown.
