Secure File Deletion
Can anyone recommend a good GUI based secure deletion tool. I'm checking out BleachBit, would love something that will allow me to right-click and securely shred a file or folder (incl subfolders + files) without me having to configure 'nautilus-actions' (because I tried that and it didn't work).
You can take a look at some of the file deletion utilities here to see if any of them might work for your needs:
File Deletion | Linux App Finder
I'm not sure if any of them have a GUI, but if one is not mandatory, you can securely delete files with wipe as simply as going to a command line and using the wipe command:
The manual page for wipe gives more info and options for using it:

Hope you find something you like.
Thanks Oz, would this work on a folder (and subequent files/folders)?
Yes, for folders, it would be the following:
The manual page will provide more details.
wipe -r folder_name
