Files (Nautilus): trash not working

Fresh Fedora 30 installation. Fully updated. Update-testing repository enabled.

Using Files (Nautilus), if I delete a file or a directory, it doesn’t go to the trash, but it is permanently deleted.
What could be the cause?
It happens even if I delete a file from an USB drive. The trash is empty.

Please note: when I delete a file I don’t use Shift + Delete, but I hit the Delete key, or Right click → Move To Trash.

Hrm, I just tried it. “Right click → move to trash” moves it to trash here.

It could be a gsetting, but I’ve not been able to find anything for this particular behaviour in dconf-editor yet.

Hmm :thinking: if I go to the command line
ls -la /home/user/.local/share/Trash/files
show me all the deleted files and directories. This is true also for the USB drive (/run/media/user/usbdrive/.Trash-1000)

Well, I don’t know what happened, but when I rebooted the system, now Trash is working and previously deleted files are there.
