    Try the command below on your terminal:

    Code:
    gksudo nautilus
    When your nautilus window open, browse that folder - right-click on it and delete/move to trash.
    Steady movement is more important than speed, much of the time. So long as there is a regular progression of Stimuli to get your mental hooks into, there is room for lateral movement. Once this begins, its rate is a matter of discretion.

    Had you tried sudo rm? That will give you the privilege to delete a file/folder.

    *You don't have nautilus installed? You just posted a graphical error message.

    sudo rm wont delete directories, and although it says its not empty, there are no files in these directories visible, and as I said before, I'm using SSH and FTP.

    I see. Once logged on your Ubuntu server via SSH, you could issue the command:

    Code:
    rm /directory/filename.ext
    or

    Code:
    rm -rf /directory/directory-to-be-deleted
    EDIT: Try the -rf switch with your sudo rm.
