Hi all,

This bug report is not meaningless because I don't mean deleting a file in the
readonly squashfs image...

I find in xubuntu livecd mode (try without installing xubuntu), if I delete a
file on the desktop, Thunar raises a dialog says "Unable to find or create
trash directory". But it's ok to delete a directory on the desktop.

The core reason for this is described in
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/glib2.0/+bug/1391807, which is
related to glib and overlayfs.

The core intent of this bug report is, that Thunar should treat the error
returned by glib more friendly. For example, if glib says it fails to create
trash directory, Thunar may raise a dialog says "Do you want to delete the file
permanantly?". One good example of such operation is Nautilus. You team can
check Nautilus's behavior by running livecd mode of ubuntu (not xbuntu), and
trying to delete a file on the desktop.
