FWIW, I just configured kde3 (and now kde4) to map the delete key to
actual delete, with a prompt, killed the keyboard shortcut mapping for
trash, and turned on the delete menu item that's normally hidden. I'd
have turned off the move to trash menu item if I could, but that wasn't
I kept the prompt on for both delete and move to trash. For delete, the
confirmation was enough, and I left it on for trash, so in case I
actually hit trash instead of delete on the context menu, I'd get a
warning and could cancel, then actually delete.
On kde4, I'm happy to note, I was able to configure it for zero items/
size. =:^) I've not actually tested that it works and doesn't even save
the last deleted item, but that's what it /says/ I have configured it
for, at least. If I'm deleting, I want to recover the space, not have it
go into some weird half-deleted but not really deleted state, where it's
still in the trash and the disk space doesn't change. So I'm happy
that's finally possible in kde4! =:^). (FWIW, yes, I know deleted items
can often be recovered using undelete or disk editing utilities, I just
want it deleted, and the space recovered.)
