    .Trash folder in the /root directory.

    .Trash folder in the /root directory. If I'm using gksudo nautilus, where can i access this cause It may have trash I can delete. (Trying to free up space , and I already used wacktomack's guide)

    Re: .Trash folder in the /root directory.

    There's a hidden directory in /root named ".local". Inside that is a directory named "share" and in that is the "Trash" directory. In a console window you can
    Code:
    sudo su
    to become root
    Code:
    cd /root/.local/share/Trash
    Code:
    pwd
    to confirm you are where you should be. In that folder are two folders, "files" and "info". So,
    Code:
    cd files
    to enter the files directory, then

    Code:
    rm *
    to delete the contents. Then exit root mode -- it is not recommended for normal work.

    ~/.local/share/Trash

    Root's should be at /root/.local/share/Trash

    Empty Root Trash should be able to empty root's trash for you.
