|gvfs-trash [OPTION...] [LOCATION...]|
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://.
The following options are understood:
-h, --helpPrints a short help text and exits.
--versionShows the version number and exits.
-f, --forceIgnore nonexistent and non-deletable files.
--emptyEmpty the trash.
On success 0 is returned, a non-zero failure code otherwise.
