I suspect that the target directory doesn't exist.

By the way, it always helps to get a detailed description of the error.
"it doesn't work" can mean anything, so look for error messages
anywhere.  If you run "ranger --debug", you get extra error messages
sometimes.  If you run stuff in the shell - like you did - ranger will
hide all the error messages, but you can see them after you quit ranger.
For example, I see this when using your keybinding, pressing DD and
quitting ranger:

mv: accessing ‘/home/hut/.config/ranger/Trash’: No such file or directory

So, does it work after you create that directory?
