    unknown location of deleted files?

    I just tried to delete over 15 gb of files. Unfortunately none of them went to the trash. Evidently they're still taking up space because I'm still low on it. Does anyone know where they could have gone?

    okay apparently they're in .local/share/Trash but they refuse to be deleted...

    Can you see the files after giving:
    Code:
    ls ~/.local/share/Trash/files
    if you do, then just go into that folder and delete them again.
    EDIT:
    try with sudo, i.e.
    Code:
    sudo nautilus ~/.local/share/Trash/files

    Did it open a new window?

    Re: unknown location of deleted files?

    I saw them under "ls" but i couldn't delete them in root
    Does that mean you tried

    Code:
    cd /home/sushi/.local/share/Trash/
    sudo rm -rf *
    and could not delete the files?
    If you ask for help, please have the courtesy to check for responses and thank the people who helped you.

    Re: unknown location of deleted files?

    Seiji's advice worked. I thought I could delete the files after loading dolphin as root in terminal. would that have required gksudo? I've never really known what that code was for.
