"I've previously written about how to securely and permanently
delete files in Linux and Windows. The programs I mentioned in
those tutorials were all command-line baed, but this tutorial will
show you how to add a secure-delete option to the contextual menu
in Ubuntu and Fedora Linux.
"1. Install the Nautilus Actions Configuration utility
"First, install the nautilus-actions package, which provides a
graphical utility for editing the Nautilus right-click menu. We'll
use this utility to add the secure delete option. You can install
the nautilus-actions package by using the following command:
Fedora: sudo yum install nautilus-actions
Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install nautilus-actions
"Once installed, you can configure the new menu option."
