Ubuntu – How to turn off trash


I don't believe in Trash Bin and when I delete something I want it to be gone forever, how to turn off the Trash?

P.S. When I delete files from the console do they also go to Trash?

  • You can add a delete action as described at How to delete files bypassing trash . Files deleted from the console are immediately removed, but please note that under some circumstances they can still be recovered, if you want to securely delete files use the "wipe" command.
