I am trying to set up the ability for multiple users to use the Trash on a NTFS drive.
The main solution proposed on the forums consists into enabling a single user to use the Trash. That is made by adding the option
Example fstab entry:
UUID=0A046CF41C7164C6 /media/Data ntfs defaults,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 0
But this only allows the original user, with
id=1000, to use the Trash. The other users do not have access to it.
A proposed solution for multiple users is to inherit properties from windows. I tried this but I could not make it work.
But I then notice that this may not have anything to do with the way the NTFS drive is mounted:
- Deleting from Nautilus displays the message "Impossible to move the file to Trash"
- Deleting from Dolphin displays... nothing. And the file is moved to Trash.
But I do not wish to use Dolphin.
So here is my question: Would it be possible to stop messing around with fstab and just configure Nautilus correctly? Or does anybody have a simple/working solution to solve this problem?
Note: I am running Ubuntu 11.10 on a 64bits system.
Thanks a lot for your help!
edit: And I notice too that Thunar, XFCE File Manager, can also put files to trash without any trouble. So what's up with Nautilus?
