I switched from Nautilus to Marlin but was no longer under development so switched to Pantheon Files, whose now under Elementary OS developers. But whenever I click the Trash Icon from Launcher, Phanteon files opens the Home Folder. Is it a bug that I need to file this to it's developers or can someone here can help me?

using Pantheon Files 0.1 on my 12.04 precise.

google was nice to me and solved my own problem. for those of you having the same problem, you need to check some lines in your mimeapps.list:

i suggest to backup first. go to ~/.local/share/applications/, copy then rename pasted file of mimeapps.list to mimeapps.list.backup

open the original file, look for this line:

x-scheme-handler/trash=marlin.desktop

if your using nautilus, it must be trash=nautilus.desktop

make that line look like this (i'm using Pantheon File manager):

x-scheme-handler/trash=pantheon-trash.desktop

and pantheon-trash.desktop file must be on the same directory (~/.local/share/applications)

here's what pantheon-trash.desktop file looks like:

[Desktop Entry]

Name=Trash Folder
Comment=Open your personal trash folder
TryExec=pantheon-files
Exec=pantheon-files trash:///
Icon=trash
Terminal=false
StartupNotify=true
Type=Application
Categories=GNOME;GTK;Core;
OnlyShowIn=GNOME;Unity;
X-GNOME-Bugzilla-Bugzilla=GNOME
X-GNOME-Bugzilla-Product=pantheon-files
X-GNOME-Bugzilla-Component=general
X-Ubuntu-Gettext-Domain=pantheon-files
Name[en_PH]=pantheon-trash
