How about a sort by delete date in the Trash?


Description majest 2015-12-04 22:01:17 CET
In the Trash folder, you can sort by everything except delete date. Can you please add it as an option - thanks.

WIP Patch

This patch creates the "Date Deleted" column, but I wasn't able to hide it while in folders other Trash.

Oh, this looks like quite an interesting patch! 

hmm I'm no programmer, but I have the git repo cloned... I wonder if it would be hard to only display that column in Trash://

Hi, any news about it?
It's a very useful feature sorting by deletion date in the trash bin.

This is how pcmanfm-qt have done it, if you want to look at: https://github.com/lxqt/pcmanfm-qt/issues/367

WIP Patch 2

Updated patch.

I couldn't find where to toggle the visibility of this column, at thunar_column_model_load_visible_columns there is no way to check if the current directory is trash. At thunar_standard_view_set_current_directory there is no way to change details-view columns visibility.

I think that at details-view a signal handler could toggle the column's visibility, but which signal? I don't know how to override ThunarNavigator's set_current_directory, maybe a custom signal can be emitted at thunar_standard_view_set_current_directory.

Alex, ideas?
