Naive scripting question (for Nautilus)


This is only the second script I have ever wrote. Basically I want to be able to send the contents of a directory to trash using the Nautilus scripting facility - Note I want to retain the original directory.

My attempt:

#!/bin/sh

# Send contents to trash

(cd $1)

(mv $(ls) /home/myself/.Trash)

Result is that EVERYTHING in my /home/myself gets to go to Trash.

I understood that $1 argument pertained to the selected file/directory.

Cheers.
