This is plain Stupid


Trash Can, FC3
Right click on trash can and Empty and it sends it to /home to .Trash-0 and you play
hell as SU to empty or delete directory.
It only gives you the option to send it to trash and that won't happen, and at which
time it's chewing away at your harddrive space.
Who the hell dreamed this one up ?
The guy that come up with this one, was the one that design the WOM (Write Only Rom).

This is one reason why you should be using a CLI instead of a GUI filemanager to do all your little tedious tasks when viewing, moving, copying and deleting files....

There must be a problem with your installation because the trash can works fine for me. If you are using GNOME, you can add a delete command by firing up nautilus and enabling this option from the preferences menu.
