gvfs-trash - Move files or directories to the trash SYNOPSIS
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. -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. SEE ALSO
