    Hardy: Trash never works (64-bit)

    I upgraded as of Hardy Beta 5 in March, and as a result, many apps required root to run at all until I reinstalled them and/or did a chmod and chown to set permissions to standard values. As yet, nothing ever moves to trash, though this seems not to be a problem for those who upgraded later, in April.

    Does anyone know now to fully reset and fully reinstall the trash applet and everything related to trash? I always get the pop-up "Cannot move to trash. Delete? Delete All?" etc.

    A corollary of this question is, is this the right set of permissions?

    drwxr-xr-x 3 peter users 4096 2008-03-24 11:32 /home/peter/.local/share/Trash/files

    That's what I have now.

    Many thanks and muchas gracias.

    I received that message with ntfs and vfat drives and found a solution. Your situation appears different, but I thought I would post what I did just in case it might be of assistance to you or others.

    What I did was:

    1) Backup fstab.

    2) Add uid=1000,gid=1000 as options to the partition's fstab entry (see example below).

    3) Create a directory named .Trash-1000 in the partition's root.

    4) Restart the computer.

    Upon completion of the above, deleted files are placed in a directory named files within the .Trash-1000 directory, and the Ubuntu desktop trash icon shows the deleted files.

    ~~~

    Example fstab entry
    UUID=44B5-9621 /media/store vfat defaults,utf8,umask=007,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 1

    I have the same. Also under Trash there is another directory named info, with a bunch of zero length files.

    And in the root directory there is a file named .Trash-0 (/.Trash-0)

    Ok, but it's not a Microsoft drive format, it's my ext3 /home/ directory. Do I still try that?

    No! The fix I posted only works with ntfs and vfat drives. Sorry I couldn't be of help--perhaps someone else will have a suggestion.

    So trash is not part of a package I can reinstall?
