Dolphin Service Menus

Source (link to git-repo or to original if based on someone elses unmodified work):



A service menu to secure delete your files and folders in dolphin file manager. Routines have been modified to work in Plasma 5. Original work was done by Vanbosco see to work in kde3 and kde4.

Place this in a subdirectory like /home/yourusersname/Downloads/Secure-Delete-Servicemenu-kde5-master, make certain is executable with permissions 755. In konsole:

cd ~/Downloads/Secure-Delete-Servicemenu-kde5-master # change directory to where resides

chmod 755 # change permissions to make it executable

stat -c "%a %n" # verify

./ # install routines

optional step - Remove downloaded routines (no longer needed) (remove comment # to run):

rm * -r # Will do the optional step. Make certain cd is still one set above so only downloaded files are removed. will create and place the necessary kde desktop files to allow you to run securedelete and securedeletefolders from Dolphin file manager.
This was not kept up to date by the author (vanbosco on so I just copied and modified his routines to make them work under KDE Plasma 5.

Make certain srm is installed by entering in a konsole: which srm you should see: /usr/bin/srm

If not, then install it in konsole: sudo apt install secure-delete
