comment Nautilus moving items to Trash without asking for confirmation
@JacobVlijm I guess you're right but my installation / upgrade involves documenting it all and this involves extra steps. Let's just say I probably have the same intentions in that area as the nautilus developers - keeping things lean. I'd be interested to see the rationale behind the de-speccing of nautilus. But it's interesting to learn about trash cli facilities.

comment Nautilus moving items to Trash without asking for confirmation
@JacobVlijm I don't want to sound discouraging because I thought you came up with a great work-around but I decided that I didn't want to take on the extra configuration that would have to be maintained at the next upgrade. I switched from Nautilus to another file manager that does demand confirmation natively.

Block devices? Do you mean a file? Anywhere the user is able to delete stuff, I would find it much safer to have their action subject to confirmation.

comment Nautilus moving items to Trash without asking for confirmation
Argh! OK. Thanks. The major problem I have with that though is that I sometimes randomly hit the delete key on my keyboard without even noticing. I'm sure it's happened and I can't live with the idea of looking through my trash folder to check I am not going to throw out something I didn't mean to.

comment Region 1 DVD won't play - all region 2 dvds play fine
Actually nobody has mentioned the results of vobcopy - is it just tough luck that I can't play the vob files produced? There's nothing more to be said or what?

comment How to rip DVD's in high quality
I had problems getting dvdrip to do any ripping. acidrip ripped but the quality was terrible, no doubt because i used default settings since i don't know what half the settings are about. handbrake wouldn't install initially because it's repository has no directory for saucy, but following the instructions here ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2013/10/… got me going and it worked great first time.
