Whereas most file managers are able to correctly trash files to trash folders located in their own partitions (even pcmanfm-qt), Dolphin moves the files to the user's home partition. And Dolphin's own trash won't list nor delete permanently trash in different partitions, trashed by other, proper, file managers.

I thought I had it solved somehow (manually creating the trash folders, if I recall), with some late left-overs...

How To Install Xiphos on Debian

Posted 02-27-2018 at 11:23 PM by Ztcoracat


First go to and download the src pkg, tar.gz.

Now the install file says to go to Git Hub to download Xiphos but that link didn't work for me so I downloaded the tar.gz and had to compile from src.

cd to the directory where you have xiphos and run the first cmd in the install file.
$ sudo apt-get install cpp intltool libdbus-glib-1-dev libwebkitgtk-3.0-dev libxml2-dev libgsf-1-dev libgconfmm-2.6-dev

.Xresources may mess up with GTK anti-aliasing, but it may not be immediately evident

Posted 02-22-2018 at 02:29 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

I was copying some configs from websites, related with the configuration of several terminal emulators, in order to have them look somewhat better.

Some of those deactivated GTK's text anti-aliasing, which nevertheless persisted on GTK's own config files, but was ignored. Lxappearance strangely would apparently somehow notice there was no anti-aliasing and show this option unchecked, but checking it wouldn't work, and would still be unchecked when I run lxappearance immediately after....
