I rarely use Trash. (I use Shift+Delete) But recently, I found I often remove some important files by mistake. So I want to use Trash now.
But as we all know, my limited disk space will be filled with files in Trash if I don't clear the Trash by myself.
So I have an idea. I want to move my Trash into
/tmp , so that I won't have to clear it myself.
I wrote some code into
~/.bash_profile like this:
I made a symbol link pointing to
/tmp/my-trash. I removed the directory
~/.local/share/Trash/files, and moved my symbol link into
~/.local/share/Trash, and renamed it into
But it doesn't work! I put some files into
/tmp/my-trash, clicked the Trash icon in the lower right corner. But there is nothing. I chose a file and pressed
Delete , but it said that it cannot move the file into Trash and asked me to permanent remove the file.
