Hey guys

Just wondering whats the best way to delete old /tmp files that accumulate over time?

Sorry i should have added the fact that yes i know i can delete them using a GUI but i have heard this is not a good idea as some of the files like some lock files for example are used by X, but there is quite a lot of old crap taking up megs sitting there in /tmp doing nothing which i want to delete... But i dont know enough about console commands to do it out of X.
