"Empty Trash" Menu

You can add this missing feature in LXDE, emptying the trash can using a menu thanks to the file manager actions (it should be compatible with all versions of PCManFM except maybe Qt based builds, for now).    http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-uDbk9B2OUPI/Ve10Jqw6YCI/AAAAAAAADRs/2JjJaq_LhYQ/s1600/lubuntu-kos-vyprazdnit.png

For Lubuntu 15.04 and 15.10

Open a LXTerminal and use these five commands:

  1. sudo apt-get install trash-cli
  2. mkdir --parents $HOME/.local/share/file-manager/actions
  3. wget -O $HOME/.local/share/file-manager/actions/ask-trash-empty.desktop https://raw.githubusercontent.com/NicolasBernaerts/ubuntu-scripts/master/lubuntu/trash-empty/ask-trash-empty.desktop

  4. sudo wget -O /usr/local/bin/ask-trash-empty https://raw.githubusercontent.com/NicolasBernaerts/ubuntu-scripts/master/lubuntu/trash-empty/ask-trash-empty

  5. sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/ask-trash-empty

Re-login again and everything should work smoothly.

For Lubuntu 14.10, LTS and below

Even though these options haven't been tested, the options should work as suggested in the above paragraph.
