I have chown /opt folder to my user id so that i can store files there. I also have /.Trash folder which is chmod 1777.

Now when i delete a file which belongs to me from /opt it ends up
in /.Trash/1000/ folder, but which i click on nautilus trash icon,
it shows trash as empty.

The above behavior is only for /(root) partition. When i mount removable media and delete files, they promptly show up in my trash and i can empty them.

I've tried to search on google.. but to no avail. If someone knows how to fix this, it would be a big help.

thanks
