So if you want to do it system wide, check out this solution:

Welcome to the Forum!

If you want this functionality in Thunar file manager (default in Xfce), open the file ~/.config/Thunar/accels.scm, find this line

; (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/ThunarLauncher/trash-delete" "Delete")

and change it to

(gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/ThunarLauncher/trash-delete" "<Primary>d")

You might have to logout/login in order for the shortcut to change in the file manager.
