I'm on Ubuntu 17.10 and I wonder how I can delete an image with Eye of Gnome / EOG, I press del keyboard button, but nothing happens. Also there is no option for delete on the menu:

EOG UI, compressed menu has no delete

My EOG version is:

$ sudo apt show eog
Package: eog
Version: 3.26.1-0ubuntu1
Priority: optional
Section: gnome
Origin: Ubuntu
  • On 3.28.2 and Arch Linux, pressing Del works for me. – muru May 24 '18 at 10:19
  • @muru Yes, it should work, but it is not working for me. I'm not sure why. – user3405291 May 24 '18 at 10:20

The documentation says:

To delete a picture that you don't want any more, right-click the picture and select Move to Trash.


  • For some reason I didn't try right-clicking – user3405291 May 24 '18 at 9:05
