Exclamation Items doesn't appear in the Trash

Hello, when I put an item on the Trash on any drive then I click on the Trash under File System, I don't find any item. When I click on Delete on the keyboard to move a file to the Trash it doesn't work. What should I do?
Note: The system's updated.

Re: Items doesn't appear in the Trash

How were you deleting the files thus far? If you right click on the files, you will have the 'Move to Trash' option. Alternative is the CTRL+DEL. Of course, you can also drag and drop items to the trash folder on the bookmarks pane.

As far as I know, If you want to find deleted files via command line, you would have to look in /home/user/.local/share/Trash/files.

Hello, I use the 2 first ways and the files and folders don't appear in the Trash which's under File System.

Re: Items doesn't appear in the Trash

Have you also checked the stated folder using command line? I cannot imagine where else the files would be sent. Sorry!

Jus to clarify have you been using "Move to trash" or "Delete" as the latter is there is explicitly bypass the collection of files in trash... which might explain where your files are disappearing to

I used "Move to trash" and "Control + Delete" to move files to the trash. The files appear in the trash in the driver but it doesn't appear in the trash under File System.

Re: Items doesn't appear in the Trash

If you move something to "trash"(the icon you're seeing in Files), you're really moving it to /home/username/.local/share/Trash/files. I'm betting you are moving your stuff somewhere else. You've mentioned this a couple of times:

Quote:
when I put an item on the Trash on any drive
which makes me think that there's some other "trash" involved. So, do some detective work!

Check the NEXT post for an easier way to do this!


First, open a terminal and type "locate trash". That will give you all the items mentioning "trash". Then, move something to trash, anyway you currently use. Finally, start browsing down to find the item, using the terminal.

For instance, my 'trash' works fine. So, I've moved a .jpg to trash and I'll go find it:
Opening a terminal, I type:

Quote:
[bob@localhost ~]$ locate trash
/home/bob/.e/e/applications/trash
/home/bob/.gconf/apps/evolution/mail/trash
(and a ton more non-important spots), until....
/home/bob/.local/share/Trash (that looks promising!)
So, let's go there and check it out:

Quote:
cd /home/bob/.local/share/Trash
and let's see what's there:

Quote:
ls
expunged files info
Ah! Let's check "files"

Quote:
cd files
ls
and there it is!

Quote:
amvets4.jpg
Okay, that's one way of finding them. With the terminal, the "locate" command doesn't find an item in trash, so you need to dig a bit. Also, once you dig down to a Trash folder, you'll have to use "ls" (listing what's in it) to see the contents and then cd into any "files" you find there to see if the trashed file/pic is there.

It doesn't solve your problem, but it does give you the location for the files and hints on how it ended up there. So, if you want to do the digging and report your results, maybe someone can fix it from there.

Re: Items doesn't appear in the Trash

Here's another way of finding that trashed amvets4.jpg:

Quote:
find / -name amvets4.jpg
(whole bunch of permission denied as it searches root files, then....)

/home/bob/.local/share/Trash/files/amvets4.jpg
So, that's an even easier way to locate your missing trashed items, so long as you know one of the names.

Re: Items doesn't appear in the Trash

I installed Ubuuntu before and there were files in each drive it's name is Trash000 (I don't remember the name). I deleted it then I updated Fedora. When I transported a file to the trash it appeared in the trash under File System. The problem's fixed but I don't know how.
