View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Empty Trash as Root

August 17th, 2008, 05:21 AM
I recently downloaded Pekwm, and realized I don't want it. I put it in the trash can in the bottom right of the screen, then hit Empty Trash. The folder and some files are still in there. When I click one of them and hit delete, it says permission denied. This leads me to believe that I need to be root to delete these files. How can I go into the trash as root?

Also, ~/.Trash doesn't exist in my home folder.

Press Alt-F2 and paste in the command
gksudo nautilus I believe your trash is in /home/username/.local/share/Trash/files
