No need for gvfs-trash to delete files in Atom (Electron)
- 25 Jun 2017: Post was created (diff)
I don’t want to install
gvfs with all its friends just to be able to delete files from within Atom/Electron. However, the environment variable
ELECTRON_TRASH can set another trash handler, e.g.
trash-cli, which is dependency free.
So I append the variable to my
.zshenv and live on as a happy man.
# pacman -S trash-cli --noconfirm > /dev/null $ echo "export ELECTRON_TRASH=trash-cli" >> ~/.zshenv
Restart Atom and continue to enjoy life
