Re: How do you delete files
Which file, and where is it? You can right-click and delete files that belong to your user account. Any files owned by Root are system files and best left alone unless you know what you are doing. You can't "just" delete a root-owned file. It doesn't belong to you!

(Or you can use the command-line to delete it as root, either way is fine).
I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
