How do I get the delete button in dolphin to work?

Postby 2handband » Sun Feb 24, 2013 10:59 pm

In order to delete files in Dolphin I have to go to root actions in the context menu and enter my password? This must be a Mint thing, because I've been using another KDE distro for the past couple of years and have never had to do that; the Delete button just worked. Can i fix this? If I wanted an OS that tries to protect me from myself I'd use Windows.

No. It's a Linux thing. It's called security. You need to have permissions on the drive. Follow these steps:
