    Post make all deletions goto Trash?

    I was wondering if there was a way to make any files deleted from any program or function to goto Trash. I was thinking this after accidently deleting my torrent list from Transmission. This is also when I noticed that there is no log file for Transmission but anyways. I couldn't seem to undelete the content of my download folder but I was able to recover the torrents. At any rate. I see there is a program to make the command line delete files to the Trash but is there a way to get Transmission do the same? Thanks for any info

    i've had the same problem over and over and have been wondering myself.
    i think not, but it would be good.
    what is this command line program you mention?
    if transmission and other programs use 'rm' shell command, it could be a replacement.
    though i doubt. but worth a try.
    please stick to the facts and be kind.
    what else can you do when you don't know each other.

    Here's the URL: http://www.webupd8.org/2010/02/make-...nstead-of.html

    It's a couple years old but I think everything still holds true.
    Just did a quick search and I am unable to find if Transmission uses rm or not

    yes, that's pretty much what i thought.
    i really don't know about transmission (and other programs).
    i sent a question to #transmission irc channel...

    seems we were both barking up a non-existant tree...

    transmission irc channel, just now:
    is it pssible to remove torrents and their files to the trash? we're discussing this here: ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2160329
    <Cursarion> I've thought Transmission does that
    <Cursarion> though it could be depending on OS
    <geirha> the gtk client uses the trash, but not the daemon (obviously)
    <mus> yes, how stupid of me. right clicking, remove & delete, i find the file in the trash. but the *.torrent file is gone - could i reconstruct a torrent when i download the same torrent file from the interwebz and point it to the restored file?
    <geirha> yes, it will automatically check if the torrent data exist in the download dir, and check that the checksums match the ones in the torrent
    please stick to the facts and be kind.
