From: Robert Rothenberg Date: 20:15 on 26 Apr 2007 Subject: Trashcan hate I use Xfce as a desktop. It's one of the few desktops that actually follows the Freedesktop.org trashcan spec . Basically, trashed files are moved into ~/.local/.Trash/files, and some metadata about the file is saved into ~/.local/.Trash/info. Gnome doesn't follow this. Instead, files are moved into ~/.Trash. Since I run various Gnome applications from within Xfce, when I delete a file from within those applications, they go into Gnome's trashcan, which Xfce's trashcan cannot see. Even better: when I view removable media using Thunar (Xfce's file manager), it's running Gnome's volume manager inside of it. So if I delete files, they go into Gnome's transhcan, not Xfce's, even though I'm using an Xfce app. Lovely!  http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Specifications_2ftrash_2dspec

The storage formats are different (I haven't looked into why trash needs a storage format), so some kind of breakage would occur. Gnome will be using the freedesktop trash thing Any Release Now or something, so eventually this hate will go away. Crazy but (probably) true. -josh

Crazy but > (probably) true. You mean GNOME will soon be able to rummage through Xfce's trash? Sounds about right... :-) Regards,
