Last time, I talked about setting up a trash can for Xubuntu. Now, you can use it in Thunar too!

1. Set up the trash can as described in Howto: Terminal Tips and Tricks.
2. Open Thunar and select “configure custom actions…” in the Edit menu.
Add a new action by pressing the “+” button.
3. In the dialog, set the options like shown in the figure. Name it whatever you want. I named it “Move to trash”.
Custom action - move to trash
4. In the “appearance conditions” tab, leave the pattern as “*” and select all the check boxes. See second figure.

5. Finally, you get the Move to Trash option in the popup menu:

  1. The screenshots aren’t showing up. I think blogger doesn’t allow remote linking.

    Still, useful tip.

  2. Thanks; I fixed it.
