I am a regularly using meld to compare files and folders on my Linux boxes / VMs. I really like it, and it works reliably and even treats symbolic links reasonably, but I have a problem:
Delete entry in the context menu (when right-clicking on a folder or file name) is always grayed out; the same is true for the
Delete button in the button bar below the menu bar. This is not life-threatening, but can become quite a pain when the comparison result shows a large number of files or folders you don't need any longer, and you have to switch to the command line or another file manager to delete them.
This happens e.g. in debian buster (meld 3.20.0).
Is there a solution to this problem?
Please note that I have logged into the graphical environment as root user (for testing purposes), so this is not a permission problem.
