Deleting files in finder is now permanently deleting the files (i.e. basically doing rm filename) and is not moving the items to trash. How do I fix this behavior? I like being able to undo my deletes.
Check what the permissions and owner for
$ ls -led ~/.Trash drwxr-xr-x 39 lauri staff 1326 Apr 17 02:49 /Users/lauri/.Trash
If the owner is
sudo chown $USER ~/.Trash. If the permissions are for example
dr-xr-xr-x instead of
chmod 755 ~/.Trash.
