    Default Trash on external drive


    Hello fellow Suserians,

    I'm running openSUSE 11.0 with KDE 4.1.3, when I delete files from
    external drives (e.g. USB-stick) to the trash bin they get moved to my
    local trash folder. How can I change this behavior so that they are just
    placed in the trash folder on the external drive?

    Just create a folder called Trash and move them there. That'll do it.
    Strange idea.

    SHIFT-DELETE
    Gone forever

    Yeah... thanks, not really what I was looking for though. There must be
    a _real_ solution which doesn't require working around the problem all
    the time?
    I want my pc to do what *I* want, not jumping through loops for its
    amusement.

    typically a _*desktop*_ trash bin is just a file

    called for eg: usb.trash

    create a text file and give it a name like that

    type the following:


    Code:
    --------------------
    [Desktop Entry]
    Comment=Contains deleted files
    Encoding=UTF-8
    Icon=trashcan_full
    EmptyIcon=trashcan_empty
    OnlyShowIn=KDE
    Type=Link
    URL=trash:/
    X-SuSE-translate=true
    --------------------
    Only you may have to edit the detail to get it to work. Or have you
    tried this. I'm flying blind with this myself. Just trying to give you
    an idea.
