I just installed a fresh Debian 8 with Gnome 3 and in Nautilus the delete key is not working.
Via Google I found out that setting
org.gnome.desktop.interface can-change-accels to
true with dconf should be a workaround allowing to reassign the hotkey for the Nautilus action move to trash. Unfortunately this is not working for me.
Another solution suggested setting
; (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/DirViewActions/Trash" "<Primary>Delete")
(gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/DirViewActions/Trash" "Delete")
in the config file
Even after a refresh (
Alt+F2 and then
r) plus closing all Nautilus instances and reopening nautilus this did not work either.
Is this a known problem? Are there any other possible solutions?
EDIT: don_crissti stated that
accels are broken since Gnome 3.12
and until < 3.16. So the only option left seems to be waiting for Gnome >= 3.16 to be integrated or updating manually.
