unpredictable "delete" "move to trash" or "cut" file menu option
 
each time that i navigate and select one or multiple files the options "delete" "move to trash" or "cut" are randomly disabled to enabled i must go to other folder and only when return the options are available i use fedora14 x86_64 kde and have rw permissions on the partition the fstab entry for the partition is:

/dev/sda13 /media/multm ntfs-3g defaults,noatime,gid=501,gmask=007 0 0


i have tested in dolphin and konkeror with the same behavior, please help

This sounds awfully like it might be permission related. Is /media/multm a shared directory?

The next time it happens, try opening a terminal and running ls -l on the items in question to see whether that turns up anything.

Hi, take me a while to that annoying behavior shown again ...

i did ls to the folder:
[dorian@casiv downs]$ ls -lash
total 251M
4.0K drwxrwxrwx 1 root localuser 4.0K Sep 24 09:37 themes
8.0K drwxrwxrwx 1 root localuser 8.0K Oct 24 05:07 tools
0 drwxrwxrwx 1 root localuser 0 Oct 29 10:17 torrents
24K drwxrwxrwx 1 root localuser 24K Nov 28 09:02 trash
4.0K drwxrwxrwx 1 root localuser 4.0K Sep 22 11:12 utls
4.0K drwxrwxrwx 1 root localuser 4.0K Nov 22 22:52 win

as see on the picture not even "copy" is enabled, my username is "dorian"(uid=500) belong to "localuser"(gid=501) group
[dorian@casiv ~]$ whoami
dorian

[root@casiv ~]# cat /etc/fstab
#
# /etc/fstab
# ...
/dev/sda13 /media/multm ntfs-3g defaults,noatime,gid=501,gmask=007 0 0
/dev/sda14 /media/downs ntfs-3g defaults,noatime,gid=501,gmask=007 0 0
those folders are a local folders but are shared with others over samba , just in case i'll include smb.conf
[root@casiv ~]# cat /etc/samba/smb.conf
[downs]
path = /media/downs
; read only = yes
browseable = no
valid users = sambauser
comment = downs
[multm]
path = /media/multm
; read only = yes
browseable = no
valid users = sambauser



[root@casiv ~]# groups sambauser
sambauser : sambauser localuser
of course has i've tell before changing temporally folder activate the options "copy", "cut", "move to trash", "delete". please help that's really annoying, i'm suspicious that could be ntfs-3g related problem... could be a bug?... thanks

This is getting a little deep for me. The permissions indicate that all rights are granted. I don't know whether the fact that the folders are owned by root might be an issue or not.

If it's an NFTS file system, though, that might be an issue. I understand that Linux permissions do not translate transparently to NFTS, though I can't find a link that explains it clearly.

I am hoping someone comes along and helps both of us see the light.
