Additional information

can you post a screen recording?
If you use obsidian trash in the settings, does it work?

Yes. Obsidian trash works. And my system trash works otherwise.

Do you see any errors in the console when deleting? It might be a permission issue.

To check for errors, first open the developer tools by pressing Ctrl-Shift-I on Windows/Linux or Cmd-Opt-I on macOS, and then go to the “Console” tab. If you want to save the error to a log file, you can right click on the error and choose “Save as…”.

Nope. Nothing in console, even when logging all levels.

I am working on (almost) the same environment (Ubuntu Mate 20.04 LTS) and it smoothly works in my case…

Is this a difference between snap and appimage? what do you have?

Snap. I originally installed it with the following command:

sudo snap install --dangerous obsidian_0.7.3_amd64.snap

And have updated w/ auto-updater since then.

Does this happen with the latest version of the installer?

I’m using the AppImage now that there is one. v.0.9.20.

I was only using the --dangerous installation method because there was no AppImage back then.

Deleting to system trash works with my current setup.
