Description Tomáš Hnyk 2006-07-23 12:54:46 UTC
It would be nice if we could optionally delete files first to gnome-trash.
Comment 1 info 2007-04-22 10:15:48 UTC
I agree to this request because it's awful if you delete a file and after it you recognize that it was the wrong one. So at the moment there isn't a way to recover the file and that's hard.
Comment 2 Joachim Stegmaier 2008-01-15 19:52:31 UTC
As far as I can see, the bug is still present in 1.2.4. And in my opinion it's not a "nice to have" feature. Modern programs (especially file managers) always first delete to trash! It took me some time to recover my files (luckily I had them on a second disk)

Just as a tip : Total commander uses the following key assignment : 
DEL = move to trash
SHIFT-DEL = really delete 
with mouse : always "move to trash"

That would be perfect also for gc.
Comment 3 epiotr 2008-01-15 21:30:43 UTC
Deleting to .Thrash is already scheduled to be added to gcmd (see As we are very close the release of 1.2.5, the feature will go into the next one.
Comment 4 Christoph Langner 2008-07-01 08:55:24 UTC
What about this feature? GNOME Commander 1.2.6 is out, and i can't find this feature? Btw, since GNOME 2.22 the Trash moved from ~/.Trash to ~/.local/share/Trash/files acording to the freedesktop specs.

Delayed, but still scheduled for implementation...

Comment 7 oleg-sz 2008-10-15 10:53:09 UTC
I'm worth Gnome Commander v 1.2.7
Comment 8 mike 2009-09-26 21:25:05 UTC
I want this feature too...

I think that it is simple to set action mv -f /path/to/trash/ instead of rm -rf... Is it possible to do this by myself? I'm ready to change something in source code and rebuild gnome-commander :)

One more vote for implementing this as soon as possible.
