    Unhappy KDE trash icon sadly always red

    Hello all,

    Only to share a personal point of view.
    I'm using KDE Plasma from years now, very sutisfied... but, hope some day folks at KDE will success in trying to fix the trash red folder after having emptied it!
    Is it a very complicated task? What's the difficulty on that?

    Thanks all.

    I am not sure about what you want, but it seems to me being a typical wish for the KDE developers. And thus I doubt any of your fellow openSUSE users here can do much for you.

    I even doubt many openSUSE developers (who are normally not here) can do much for you. Maybe they can go upstream to the KDE developers, but it is of course much shorter to do that yourself.

    https://forum.kde.org/ for discussing your item with fellow KDE users.

    https://bugs.kde.org/ when you think it is a bug you experience.

    Hello Henk,

    ok I see. I'll do a post also at KDE forum. Anyway I thought that also here OpenSUSE users faced the same issue and wish to know how to solve it.
    Is it only my case? Maybe it is a general problem, nobody saw it?

    Thanks a lot.

    As said in my post "I am not sure about what you want". You seem to think that everybody (or at least most) use plasma the same as you do. There are so many ways to configure your DE that that it probably not the case. And thus talking about "to fix the trash red folder"might need an explanation. Where do you see that "red trash folder", etc. You seem to think the colour is wrong, what then should it be?

    For me personally I can only say that when I run Dolphin, there is an item at the left-up that says "Prullenbak" (Dutch for "Dustbin") and there is some mini icon beside it, but that is not red at all. And yes, I can right click on the text (maybe it also works on the icon) and then click "Prullenbak legen" ("Empty Dustbin") in the context menu. But I will admit that I am more of an old fashioned text oriented user and do not pay much attention to icons.

    Make sure you have the following:


    Code:
    karl@erlangen:~/Schreibtisch> grep trash trash.desktop 
    Icon=user-trash-full
    EmptyIcon=user-trash
    URL=trash:/
    karl@erlangen:~/Schreibtisch>
    My trash bin is a blue when empty and red when non-empty.

    Maybe one should add that in your case, should go to ~/Desktop instead of ~/Schreibtisch, or another equivalent in your language.

    @Karl Yes, I have the code you posted, that's fine.
    @Sauerland Nope, no hidden files, there is no difference. The issue occurs even if there aren't any hidden files.

    Thank you

    Question Re: KDE trash icon sadly always red

    Which "rubbish bin" folder?
    • The one in Dolphin?
    • The Plasma Widget dragged to the Desktop?

    Which icon set are you using for Plasma 5?
    • The default "Breeze" set?
    • The "Oxygen" set?
    • Something else?

    Assuming Dolphin (I haven't found any other place to change the "rubbish bin" icon), if you enter the "Trash Folder" properties, is the icon being used "user-trash"?
    • For "Oxygen" users such as myself, this is a nice modern cylindrical silver rubbish bin …
    • Dolphin usually automatically changes the icon to "user-trash-full" if anything is in the rubbish bin …


    BTW: because my rubbish bin is placed on the Plasma Desktop and not in the "Desktop" folder, there ain't no ".desktop" file for the rubbish bin for this KDE user …
    And, I haven't yet found where Plasma has stored my rubbish bin icon setting …

    I deleted the trash bin from my desktop and create a new working instance by running the following command:

    Code:
    cp /usr/share/kio_desktop/directory.trash trash.desktop
