[zim wiki] Delete pages [solved]

Hi guys,

I'm not able to delete a page using thunar and openbox wm.

I always get the following error: Error: Unable to find or create trash directory

I already tried to create a .trash directory in ~ but that didn't help either.

Any ideas or working solutions?

Can you permanently delete (as opposed to 'Move to trash') files? Can you delete other files? What filesystem are you using?

Re: [zim wiki] Delete pages [solved]

Hi karol,

You're right. It is an issue of the trash folder not existing on my external hard drive which stores the wiki data. Anyway, the latest zim build shows no error message but permanently deletes the pages. Eventually that is what I wanted, so there was no need to create a trash directory on my external hard drive. The latest build of zim can be found in the AUR.

Regards
