NAME

gvfs-trash - Move files or directories to the trash

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

gvfs-trash [OPTION...] [LOCATION...]

DESCRIPTION

gvfs-trash sends files or directories to the "Trashcan". This can be a different folder depending on where the file is located, and not all file systems support this concept. In the common case that the file lives inside a users home directory, the trash folder is $XDG_DATA_HOME/Trash.

Note that moving files to the trash does not free up space on the file system until the "Trashcan" is emptied. If you are interested in deleting a file irreversibly, see gvfs-rm.

Inspecting and emptying the "Trashcan" is normally supported by graphical file managers such as nautilus, but you can also see the trash with the command gvfs-ls trash://.

OPTIONS

The following options are understood:

-h, --help

Prints a short help text and exits.

--version

Shows the version number and exits.

-f, --force

Ignore nonexistent and non-deletable files.

--empty

Empty the trash.

EXIT STATUS

On success 0 is returned, a non-zero failure code otherwise.
