I'm sick of accidentally deleting files and directories as DEL button is badly located on my keyboard. I would really like it if ubuntu asked me to confirm before deleting anything. Is there a way to do this?
While there's no delete confirmation dialog, Nautilus can tell us which files we've just deleted.
Go to the trash and select "List" as view mode. This information is in the Trashed-On column.
It appears that Nautilus may be the only file browser that shows this information. I checked Thunar and PCManFM; none of them are able to show this column.
Kinda think both options if you are sure of someone asking either of them... This saves both times. Also it may help someone having the problem different than the other.
So in simple words, try to answer in all possible ways, if u are not that busy. :)
Well, MY ANSWER is:
Deleteconfirmation is on by default, and can be set to off. But
Move to Trashconfirmation is off, and can't be modified yet!
