I am using Banshee as my media player. When I right click a track, the context menu has a 'delete from drive' option. When I use this, it deletes the file. I would like for the file to be sent to trash (recycle bin) instead. Is there a way to do this, or a plugin or extension for this?

Unfortunately, there's currently no way to do this within Banshee. I don't know of any extensions that add this functionality -- it may be out of the scope of an extension.

It has been reported to the Banshee team, though, so if you're interested in staying up-to-date with the issue, it's tracked here:

Thanks, I'll follow this! I wonder if an extension could be written for this purpose, though I imagine it wouldn't be straightforward to use. – Mendhak Oct 8 '11 at 15:17
