Description Alex Radu 2003-05-26 07:03:02 UTC
Version:           3.1.2 (using KDE KDE 3.1.2)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
Compiler:          GCC 3.3 
OS:          Linux

The trash in KDE is missing essential features for me. 

1.I would really like KDE's trash to have the ability to restore files from the context menu over the trash icon. 
2. When the trash is opened I want to be able to restore a file or group of selected files via the context menu as well as have the option to shred them.
3. In the context menu for the trash icon and when you click white space in the trash file viewer there should be something called properties in which you can adjust various settings like how big the trash can get before it auto deletes. I'm thinking a slider that shows it as how big (%) out of all the space available and as you move the slider there should be next to it a text field that shows how much that would actually be in MB or GB depending on how many available. This text box should be editable by the user in case he does not want to use the slider.
5. There should also be in the properties dialog things such as a delete command to bypass the move to trash command in the menu , icon settings(like a normal icon) and much more such as when to clean out the trash ons chedule, like everyday at 5 for example.
6. Shred command, isntead of just empty trash, it should also have shred files.
7. I often move files to trash and I've always wanted to move it to the panel and it annoys me that I can not move the trash icon to the panel without losing its trash features such as empty trash. I think this should work.

I agree : "Resore file(s)" is missing and I sometimes don't remember the original location of the deleted files !!

At least, if "move to trash" is done by a KDE class, have a .trash file in the Trash folder, where KDE store original location of files (if it is a folder that is moved to trash, only store the original location of this folder).

KDE must have this Restore feature.
