Delet To wastebasket


Hi guys

I am running SUSE 10 I had some problems setting up video (films) playback so I dragged a film (vob files) on to my hard drive from a DVD Disk and in the end I got my films to play (sorted) but when I come to deleting the VOB files to waste basket that I had dragged on to my hard drive early in the day.. its gives error message cannot move to waste basket because you do not have permissions to change it or its parent folder

if their is a post about this on the forum please except apoligies

Kindest regards

Ray (Rainy England)

Which is it you don't have permission to do:
a) move the file you downloaded.
b) move files into the wastebasket.

Right click on the waste basked icon. Select Properties from the menu. Click on the Permissions tab and set write permission.
