    Increase max trash size?


    Hi All,

    I'm trying to remove some of my larger files and it keeps telling me that the trash has reached it's maximum size. Is there a way for me to increase this? The trash is currently empty so it's the folders I'm deleting that are filling the trash size in one go.

    They say if you are using KDE you can adjust it under dolphin:

    Dolphin > Settings > Configure Dolphin > File management > Trash

    That's just what they say, its not on my suse box like that.

    Not sure why its that big of a deal, you can delete large files bypassing the whole trash folder by deleting them from the terminal.

    worked, what a screwy system to have files copied from one partiton to my home partition to delete things...............now I have a max trash at 4 gigs because my home partition is small, I have another partition that is 250 gigs but for me to delete something from it, it has to go into my Trash which is on my home partition......gnome didn't have this
