Similar to #54493

  • VSCode Version: 1.41.1
  • OS Version: Manjaro KDE 18.1.5 with latest updates

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Open a directory in VSCode
  2. Delete a directory or a file (must be going to trash)

If I use Shift and Delete, it does not freeze.
It does not matter if the directory or file are empty, it happens anyway.
It takes approximately 3-4 seconds to unfreeze.

Does this issue occur when all extensions are disabled?: Yes

More relevant information of my installation:

Okay... I just went to the ArchLinux wiki article on Visual Studio Code and played with the ELECTRON_TRASH variable. Supposedly the default is gio but I think under KDE it is set to kioclient5 or kioclient.

So, the solution is to launch Visual Studio Code like this ELECTRON_TRASH=gio code, after that file/directory moves to the trash bin are instant.

To fix this for now, I have created the file ~/.config/plasma-workspace/env/ with the following content

I can confirm this behavior on Ubuntu 18.04.4 running plasma-desktop 5.12.x.

VSCode: 1.42.1

The workaround of @jamezrin works for me. 👍
