Since I've been using Debian with GNOME 3.4.2 (default version upon installation), I've always used the dconf editor to change the
delete accel back to the normal
delete instead of
<ctrl>delete, but this time it's going wrong - It just doesn't want to stay as
delete once I close Nautilus.
Here are the steps I take:
- Open Nautilus and move to a file I want to delete.
- I click on the file.
- I open dconf-editor from Applications -> System Tools -> dconf Editor
- Make my way to org -> gnome -> desktop -> interface.
- Enable "can_change_accels"
- Go back to Nautilus and click on the edit menu and hover over "Move to Trash"
- I hit my
deletekey twice so that the new accel will be the delete key.
- Go back to the dconf editor and unselect "can_change_accels"
- Close dconf editor and Nautilus.
Once I open Nautilus again, the accel is back to
<ctrl>delete and I can't figure out why. I've done this many times, and usually if it doesn't work the first time, after a couple of tries it'll finally stay set, but this time, no dice.
This is a brand new install of Debian that I completed literally about an hour ago, using the default ftp.us.debian.org mirror (if that matters at all).
I even tried going to
/home/user/.gnome2/accels and editing the file
nautilus there. Saved it, reboot, no change whatsoever.
Does anybody have a solution for this? It's driving me nuts.
