I guess that's a permission issue, a bit similar to Bug #192629 (although it only happens on the livecd which is not a NTFS filesystem).

I checked, and Thunar calls g_file_trash (), and this error string comes directly from glib anyway. "gvfs-trash foo" on the livecd also fails with the same error.

affects: thunar (Ubuntu) → glib2.0 (Ubuntu)
