Q: configure ubuntu not to create .trash* on USB?


Hello

Is it possible to configure ubuntu (Gnome?) not to create .trash* directories on removable media such as USB memory sticks?

open your file browser, go to edit section and select preferences. Go to the behavior tab and check the include a delete command that bypasses trash. Should be down at the bottom. use delete instead of move to trash.

Thanks symatic

I already use that; I guess I have to remember to use it too!

It would be nice if there was a way to enforce it so pressing the delete key no longer works.
