Hey,

I am having a minor problem... There is an Item in my Trash can that i cannot remove. It says that permission is denied to remove it... Is there anyway to reset the trash can to be empty or to move this so that it just removes the reference.

It is just annoying... And i dont know what to do!

Solved:

Try running Nautilis as sudo, ie from the terminal type:


sudo nautilus

This should give you permission to do anything (so be careful!!!)

Good luck.

Just for future reference:
please use the graphical sudo

gksudo nautilus
