Trash applet quirks

Bug #351228 reported by DancemasterGlenn on 2009-03-29
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Awn Extras

Bug Description

When the trash applet is right-clicked, the option to "Empty the Wastebasket" is displayed. This is the only place I've found on my entire system where the trash is refered to as a wastebasket, including other references within AWN itself. Should this be changed to "empty the trash" or possibly just "empty trash"?

The only other quirk I've found that I don't think has been reported yet is that left-clicking the icon opens up a nautilus folder display of the trash, but opens it as a new task (in other words, opens it in file browser, which is connected to a file browser icon on the bar). I don't know if it was always like that, but shouldn't it open this folder, connecting it to the trash icon (instead of a new icon)?

This is tested with the ppa at, in Ubuntu Intrepid.
