[SOLVED}Thunar: Cant delete files from NTFS partition.

When I try to delete a file from the ntfs partition in Thunar i get a message "Unable to find or create wastebasket directory". Using pcmanfm or nautilus works without a problem. Anyone know a fix? I'd rather not have to use the other two or another file manager.

I'm running openbox and have went through various fm's to see which suits.

I had that problem before the update of thunar for 1.2.1-1. You have your system full updated? And also you have gvfs installed?

Re: [SOLVED}Thunar: Cant delete files from NTFS partition.

Looks like your error message comes from this code.

Looks like a permission problem. Are you mounting your NTFS partition with umask=077,uid=1000,gid=100 (in fstab)? (Assuming your user's uid and gid are 1000 and 100, of course.)

/dev/sdb1  /media/Mine  ntfs-3g   defaults          0       0

Thats my fstab entry.

Re: [SOLVED}Thunar: Cant delete files from NTFS partition.

Well then make it

/dev/sdb1  /media/Mine  ntfs-3g   defaults,umask=077,uid=1000          0       0

and try again smile. (I don't think the gid is needed, but try with it if it doesn't work...)
