    Exclamation Trash bin problem

    I am running Ubuntu 10.04 and yes, I am upgraded fully. But every time I go to look at the items in my trash bin, it doesn't respond and goes dark. I found another thread about this and tried the different suggestions but nothing seems to be working.

    go to ~/.local/share delete(shift+del) "Trash", don't worry it will be recreated, make a new file & right click-> move to trash, then try & empty it.

    You need to press ctrl+h to see hidden files/folders.

    if it happens again just repeat, trash has gone funky on me a few times when using pcmanfm2, switched to nautilus & haven't happened again since.
