A service menu to secure delete your files and folder.
This service menu is a simple frontend of only some options of srm in the package secure-delete, http://www.thc.org, see man:srm for more options.
Be careful, secure deletion (very slow and very secure) overwrite your files 38 times and can take a long time.

secure-delete, http://www.thc.org.
To install secure-delete in (k)ubuntu gutsy just enable universe repository and type in a console sudo apt-get install secure-delete.

Just extract and run ./install.sh.

1) Extract the downloaded file "secure_delete_servicemenu.tar.gz".
2) Copy the files "secure_delete.desktop" and "secure_delete_folder.desktop" in the servicemenus folder of konqueror or dolphin, for example:/home/vanbosco/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus


Version 0.3 - kde4 version - 20/04/2009
- this version should work with kde4, tested on Sidux and kde 4.2.2.
- added a simple installation script.
- added a scrip to check file/folder ownership to prevent the error message "kdialog not found".

Version 0.2 - minor update - 01/03/2008
- added "Delete only" option (very fast using rm), since in the version of Kubuntu Gutsy of dolphin this option is missing and sometimes move to trash a large number of files and folder is very slow.
- added window title.

Version 0.1 - First release - 22/02/2008

Hi spikyatlinux, i get that error when i try to delete a file that i don't own.
In next version i'm planning to write a script to check ownership of files/folder and eventually display a warming message.

In my system this service menu (and also others service menus) don't work with dolphin in 'system:/home/', where i get the 'kdialog not found' message even if i own the file, but works fine in '/home/vanbosco/' instead.
Perhaps this is what is happening to you.

 work in Kubuntu 8.1 (KDE4)?

 by jwillar on: Nov 4 2008

It appears that the path to the "servicemenu" has changed as specified in your installation text. Also, I'm really more interested in Dolphin not Konqueror. I have installed the 'THC SecureDelete 3.1.4' from the 'Package Manager' in Kubuntu 8.10, and the 'SercureDelete Servicemenu' was obtained from this site. That said, how do I proceed to get this working? I have place a "servicemenu" folder in Dolphin and Konqueror, re-booted w/o results. I've gone about as far as I can on my own.

Thanks in advance,

I can't test if it works or not with kde4 but the correct path to place your service menus is:

 path's for Kubuntu KDE 4.3

 by YAFU on: Aug 27 2009
Score 50%

install.sh doesn't work in Kubuntu with Kde 4.3 because ~/bin isn't a valid path.

$ kde4-config --path exe

I have copied the .sh scripts directly to /usr/bin everything worked.

By the way, the path for services are:

$ kde4-config --path services

Need securete-delete installed:
$ sudo apt-get install secure-delete

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
