Description of problem:
Right clicking on Nautilus' desktop wastebasket icon pops up a menu
containing a "Move to Wastebasket" option, just like every other icon.
Which seems to make no sense at all -- even if you wanted to remove
the wastebasket icon from the desktop.
This would be much better as an "Empty Wastebasket" option, so you
could avoid having to open the basket just to empty it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have Nautilus displaying the desktop
2. Right click wastebasket icon
3. See "Move to wastebasket" option.
Is the "Move to wastebasket" entry shaded for you? It is for me.
No it's not shaded... I can select it and the wastebastket icon will,
sure enough, move into the .Trash directory. To be honest, I don't see
any point using shading on it (even if it worked on mine)... because
it'll never make any sense to enable it. So it shouldn't be there at all.
Its shaded in FC3. Its debatable wheter it should be removed of
shaded. Context menu items generally shade unavailible items unless
they are always unavailible in that context. However, exactly what the
context is here is questionable. Is it "a file" in general, or "this
file". Given that we change other things on a per-type case we seem to
be on the "this file" side. So, changing this to empty trash makes
sense to me.
Hmm. Well, we already have an empty trash, only its not in the same
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
I'm looking at an FC3 version of Nautilus, and the "Move to wastebasket" option
is still unshaded.
I'm closing this as UPSTREAM, as requests like this really needs to be filed
upstream at http://bugzilla.gnome.org
