I have a seperate data partition with a functioning .Trash directory.

But ~/.local/share/Trash is the only directory seen by trash:/// in nautilus.

Here's the fstab entry for the partition:

UUID=86cf7ec3-c911-4eb9-badb-cb039f975d1d /mnt/ ext4 nodev,nosuid 02

  • You can bind the .Trash directory from the data partition to ~/.local/share/Trash.

    mount --bind source destination


    sudo mount --bind /media/sda2/.Trash ~/.local/share/Trash
