I would like to change the "Empty" button behavior in the Trash to use the shred command.
So each time I empty the Trash it do so securely.
shred -u -z -n 26 topsecret.txt
I am running Red Hat Enterprise and I've encountered a strange problem. The trash bin on my desktop appears full, full of what looks like the contents of the file system. All of the same folders etc. I cannot empty the trash because I don't have write permissions for this stuff, which makes me wonder how it got there in the first place.
i'm trying to erase files but getting an error : "Trash has reached it's maximum size! Cleanup the trash manually". The only way to erase is by holding the shift button pressed which erases the files without going through the trash.
When I am browsing images with gthumb 3.0.1, hitting the DELete key removes the file from the browser (I assume by placing it into a gthumb Trash), but it remains on disk. And there appears to be no way to either view the gthumb Trash nor empty it.
How does one view and/or empty the Trash - removing the files from the disk - in gthumb?
While I like the way Thunar looks, and I like the plugins I hate the way that thunar deals with trash. It eats drive space pretty badWhat I did what create a cronjob that emptys my trash everyday at noon:WARNING! This empties your trash everyday without giving you a choice.
Today I wondered how to empty the trash bin from CLI (just for fun :D), I googled it and foundrm-rf /home/USER/.local/share/Trash/files/*
rm-rf /home/USER/.local/share/Trash/info/*fine, that works.I have also found something more, a little program called trash-cli. ;)It does more that just emptying the trash, it provides a "mild version of rm command".
