No confirmation dialog for deleting files.

Postby Ketil on Tue Oct 21, 2008 1:38 pm

When i delete files, LinuxMint doesn't ask me if it's ok to delete.
How can I activate this?

I've tried ticking "Ask before deleting or moving to trash" in Edit -> Preferences -> Behaviour.
...but no change.

So again: how can i activate the confirmation dialog?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Well that's one of the first things I turn off if it exists - that's what Trash is for
I don't think there is such an option - you can select to have a warning or not when you empty trash or delete files directly

Ok.
Starting to get used to using trash now.

Didn't like the recycle bin in Windows, but then again in windows you have better chances of undeleting files.

....Problem solved, (kinda).
