Description Dario Andres 2008-07-25 00:33:16 UTC
Version:           Version 1.1 Using KDE 4.1.00 (KDE 4.0.99 (4.1 RC1+)) (KDEmod) (using KDE 4.0.98)
Installed from:    Compiled From Sources
Compiler:          gcc 4.3.1 
OS:                Linux

Steps to reproduce:
-Open a Dolphin window showing Trash
-Move some files to the trash. The Trash Dolphin window shows the files, and the context menu option "Empty" is enable.
-Also, the Trash plasmoid display the "full trashcan" icon.
-Select Empty trashcan from the Trash plasmoid context menu
-The Trash Dolphin windows shows nothing and the context menu option "Empty" is disable (As expected)
-Now, move some other files to the trash.
-The context menu in the Trash Dolphin window shows "Empty trash" as disabled (but there are files on it!)

The Trash plasmoid is showing the "full trashcan" icon, and its "Empty trash" option is enabled

If I manually delete the file in Trash ("Delete"(Shift+Del)) the Icon in the Information Panel stays as of the icon of the deleted file.
When I took a screenshot, the Icon in the Info Panel went to "full Trashcan" icon

(just updating bug state)
Still reproducible using:

Qt: 4.4.3

Comment 8 Dario Andres 2008-12-28 23:07:14 UTC
Mh, seems like the trashrc file is not being updated after the Trashcan plasmoid cleans the trash. There are also a lot of kio_trash process in background (?)
Also , it seems that the Trashcan plasmoid uses "ktrash --empty" to do clean the trash (I don't know if this might be related)

I'm seeing something similar in 4.1.86 (with unofficial Debian packages from kde42.debian.net at version 4:4.1.86+svn902162-0r1). When I use Digikam to move images to the trash, I can't empty the trash later on because the context menu item in Dolphin is inactive. Strangely enough, the trash icon in the Places view shows that there are indeed files in the trash.

It seems the steps changed a bit: after empty the trashcan using the plasmoid, and moving another file to trash, the option in the contextual menu was enabled (kind-a-fixed). However, after some tries of repeating this, and finally emptying the trash using the contextual menu of the Dolphin window (instead of the one on the plasmoid) cause this to happen again. The next file I moved to the trash didn't enabled the Empty Trash action in the Dolphin contextual menu.

.kde4/share/config/trashrc contains:

Even when there is a file in the trash, so it is like some inconsistency.
