    Actually, there is:

    rename <from> <to> <files>

    Useful for doing something like changing the names of files in a
    directory from *.jpeg to *.jpg, for example:

    rename jpeg jpg *.jpeg

    lets do that...i'm a Texan living in Denmark and have strong views on
    the very different health care systems in both..

    [one is great, one sucks big time! but, we can't talk 'politics' here.
    actually health care is not politics, but rather just a fact that
    everyone breathing will need it [or a very quick exit], someday.
    therefore, it is not a question of politics, economics, or governments
    but rather a topic for society's humane studies...perhaps religion,
    which we also can't roll out here.]

    I'm not sure adding healthcare to the 'fact of life' is necessarily going
    to remove it from the 'politics' category; politics are probably just as
    likely to exist there when two or more people exist in the world.

    Good luck.

    Lightbulb Re: rm to wastebin?

    Ok, to conclude, the solution to my question is this script here:
    Code:
    kioclient move "$@" trash:/

    Just a reply to the responses of moving something to ~/.local/share/Trash:
    • ~/.Trash does not exist on my machine (plain fresh Suse11.2/KDE4).
    • Neither are there any hidden .Trash or .trash directories/files in other directories.
    • When I delete a file with Dolphin, I can always observe the file being moved to
      /home/STurtle/.local/share/Trash/files/
      and some info stuff appearing in
      /home/STurtle/.local/share/Trash/info/
    • Of course, I tried moving as a user, not as root, hence ~/ resolves to /home/Chazar/
      so my try was moving to /home/STurtle/.local/share/Trash/files/



    Thanks to "please_try_again" for the provided link, which lead to the ktrash tool and then via Google to the correct solution.

    I guess I should have asked the KDE-community, but not the Suse-crowd here.

    we usually try to answer all questions for the various applications
    and environments which can run on top of openSUSE....but, that is a
    pretty broad selection and everyone should expect that more detailed
    knowledge on the innards of KDE/Gnome/Apache/etc etc etc etc to exist
    elsewhere, in more specialized forums..

    and, as already mentioned the more simple ~/.Trash exists on my
    machine....i wrongly assumed it would on yours also...sorry.

    Well, I am sorry if that sounded more harsh than I meant it to be.

    I usually have the experience to find much better help on the Suse forum!

    I just found it weird how this track derailed so quickly.
