I have a friend I'm doing the phone support thing for. He's apparently deleted files on his Ubuntu box, and now cannot move them from the Trash. Any ideas why this is? I thought it might be a permissions issue, and asked him to crack open an instance of Nautilus in root mode. He was then unable to view the files at all in the Trash directory.
Is it that trash is a virtual directory? How would I go about helping him to restore those files? There's apparently no "restore" option in the context menu for the directory.
