Support for moving files to freedesktop.org-style trashcan.
Sat, 13 Sep 2008 04:42:13 +0100
Mozilla-Thunderbird 220.127.116.11 (X11/20080724)
delete-by-moving-to-trash was recently introduced, but doesn't
really work as expected for typical gnu+linux desktop users, and I had
some procrastination to do, so...
Attached patch adds basic support for moving files to a fd.o-style
trashcan, as used in KDE/GNOME/XFCE/etc. and documented at:
Unlike "Microsoft Windows? -> use Windows Recycle Bin" or "MacOSX? ->
use MacOSX trash can", one maybe can't say "GNU/Linux/BSD? -> use
freedesktop-style Trash", so whether the freedesktop-style trashcan
should be preferred over the simple emacs fallback "trash-directory"
scheme is decided a bit roughly.
Maybe a move-file-to-trash-scheme should just be a user-visible
... I hate trashcans anyway.

Re: Support for moving files to freedesktop.org-style trashcan

I've checked your code for freedesktop.org-style trashing into CVS
trunk, with modifications.
> Unlike "Microsoft Windows? -> use Windows Recycle Bin" or "MacOSX? ->

I changed it so that Emacs supports freedesktop.org style trashing
whenever `trash-directory' is nil, the new default. (This is subject,
as before, to the `system-move-file-to-trash' override used under
Windows.) Fancy autodetection is not worth it, since the user has to
manually enable this feature anyway.
Thanks very much for writing the code.
