Description sebB 2017-10-22 16:57:04 UTC
On gvfs file manager (caja, nautilus), there is no possibility to move file to trash on a ntfs disk.
We can only delete the file definitely.

Comparing, gentoo and arch install, the only difference is /lib/udev/rules.d/99-ntfs3g.rules wich don't exist on arch.

Removing this from my gentoo system make the possibility to move file to trash on ntfs disk.

Reproducible: Always

With the mount.ntfs symlink pointing at mount.ntfs-3g, the udev rule is probably unnecessary.
