What does i386 in their file names stand for ?

How to clean up the temporary files in ubuntu ?
I tried to install some software, but they dont show up in Applications menu. Where do they go ?
as Dan mentioned, i386 signifies apps compiled for 386 and above compatible processors. dunno about what temporary filesyou're talking about. to search / install applications, click on APplications -> add/remove progs. if the icons dont appear try logging out and logging in
