Version 0.3 - kde4 version - 20/04/2009
- this version should work with kde4, tested on Sidux and kde 4.2.2.
- added a simple installation script.
- added a scrip to check file/folder ownership to prevent the error message "kdialog not found".

Version 0.2 - minor update - 01/03/2008
- added "Delete only" option (very fast using rm), since in the version of Kubuntu Gutsy of dolphin this option is missing and sometimes move to trash a large number of files and folder is very slow.
- added window title.

Hello.
install.sh doesn't work in Kubuntu with Kde 4.3 because ~/bin isn't a valid path.

$ kde4-config --path exe
/home/my_user/.kde/lib/kde4/libexec/:/usr/lib/kde4/libexec/:/usr/bin/

I have copied the .sh scripts directly to /usr/bin everything worked.

By the way, the path for services are:

$ kde4-config --path services
/home/my_user/.kde/share/kde4/services/:/usr/share/kde4/services/

Need securete-delete installed:
$ sudo apt-get install secure-delete

Thanks!

It appears that the path to the "servicemenu" has changed as specified in your installation text. Also, I'm really more interested in Dolphin not Konqueror. I have installed the 'THC SecureDelete 3.1.4' from the 'Package Manager' in Kubuntu 8.10, and the 'SercureDelete Servicemenu' was obtained from this site. That said, how do I proceed to get this working? I have place a "servicemenu" folder in Dolphin and Konqueror, re-booted w/o results. I've gone about as far as I can on my own.

I can't test if it works or not with kde4 but the correct path to place your service menus is:
~/.kde4/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus.

In my system this service menu (and also others service menus) don't work with dolphin in 'system:/home/', where i get the 'kdialog not found' message even if i own the file, but works fine in '/home/vanbosco/' instead.
Perhaps this is what is happening to you.

Hi spikyatlinux, i get that error when i try to delete a file that i don't own.
In next version i'm planning to write a script to check ownership of files/folder and eventually display a warming message.
