Hi, I seems to be simple but so far I couldn't find a solution.

I'd like to use the DEL key on my keyboard to move files to Trash (in nautilus). Any idea how to realize?

Why is such a basic function not a standard in Gnome anymore?

I am not sure about remapping the keys, but Ctrl-Del (Control and Delete keys) will do what you want.
