    Even with an administrator account you still need to use gksudo nautilus in the terminal to make changes to anything other than your home folder.

    You may have to change permissions in file properties to the create and delete files option. I have never had to do this to move a folder to trash from the file system and that could be because I only remove theme and icon files .
