I'm using Lubuntu 16.04. After following these instructions, my empty trash button appears on the trash menu ---- but it doesn't work.

I've tried to run the ask-trash-empty file on its own and it doesn't work either. I've checked and everything is on the right place.

Can somebody help? Thank you in advance!

  • The instruction there works just file in 16.04.

I don't know if you have found a solution. I had the same problem with my Lubuntu 16.04 32bit, and I solved it by installing the zenity package.

Hope this helps
