# Nemo can't open trash

I initially installed Ubuntu 16.04 with gnome shell and everything that the flavor comes from. After a while nautilus was being a resource hog so I switched to Nemo since I didn't like it anyways.

But now, I cannot open my trash. Trying to do so gives this error:

Error: Failed to execute child process "/usr/lib/gvfs/gvfsd-trash" (No such file or directory) Please select another viewer and try again.

~/.local/share/Trash works perfectly fine however. This is definitely and issue with nemo somewhere.

The solution I thought of but couldn't apply is the change the directory for the trash folder to directly go to ~/.local/share/Trash/files instead of running useless stuff. Any ideas how to do that?

• Have you tried reinstalling Nemo? – wjandrea Aug 23 '16 at 15:08
• ~/.local/share/Trash/files and trash:/// are not the same thing. It wouldn't help to change the directory for the trash folder. – wjandrea Aug 23 '16 at 15:11
• @wjandrea Yes I have. – Slava Knyazev Aug 23 '16 at 21:18
