Please don't. It's a stupid idea that makes it all too easy to trash one's music collection.

Learn to use a file browser, that's what they're for.

You can do your own script, and overcome program limitations. This is mine, use at your own risk.

trash "$(audtool current-song-filename)"
audtool --playlist-delete $(audtool --playlist-position)
audtool --playback-play

Note 1: trash is from trash-cli package, it sends file to trash. You can use, of course, rm, but it deletes the file.
Note 2: you can bind the script to a key-combination. Caution: it's dangerous
Note 3: there is no confirmation dialog. Caution: it's dangerous

Tank you juanma!

Create bash script:

nano moveCurrentTrack.sh

moveCurrentTrack.sh:
audtool --playlist-advance
mv "$(audtool --playlist-song-filename $(expr $(audtool --playlist-position) - 1))" ~/Музыка/trash/
audtool --playlist-delete $(expr $(audtool --playlist-position) - 1)

For used script need:
chmod -x moveCurrentTrack.sh

Create folder for move tracks:
mkdir ~/{music,Музыка}/trash

Start script in terminal:
sh moveCurrentTrack.sh

Not clean, but it works!

Sory, file moveCurrentTrack.sh:

audtool --playlist-advance
mv "$(audtool --playlist-song-filename $(expr $(audtool --playlist-position) - 1))" ~/{Музыка,music}/trash/
audtool --playlist-delete $(expr $(audtool --playlist-position) - 1)

juanma h
Your script is working correctly (delete the correct files)
Сергей Савельев
delete the wrong files in the 'shuffle play'!

My script :(Lubuntu 12.04)
trash-put "$(audtool current-song-filename)"
audtool --playlist-delete $(audtool --playlist-position)
audtool --playback-play

Thanks

There is now a plugin called "delete-files" which adds a right click menu in playlist.

Taking that one step further, here is a patch to add global hotkey support

Audacious is more popular in POSIX-compatible environments where hardlinks are available.
For me, a good practice after copying albums to your computer, make 'cp -rl source_dir favourite_dir', which prevents accidental deletion and allows distribution of the original copy.

That's a reply to an "almost 4 years old" post, and the delete-files plugin has been added years ago, too.

You can find more background about the plugin here: http://redmine.audacious-media-player.org/issues/76
