Where is the trashcan?


Hey guys,

I am using Morphix and ran out of space to do anything. It wonít let me do anything because it says I am out of space. When I type:
df it says I have 0% available. I tried deleting a bunch of stuff but it still says 0% available.

There must be a trash can or something somewhere but I canít seem to find it anywhere.

Any ideas?

usually it's in your home directory:
Code:
cd ~/.Trash/

I am using PHLAK, a derivative of Morphix, which is a derivative of Knoppix I believe.
It is kde

and I tried
cd ~
ls -a
and no trash
Also, i tried:
find / -name ".trash" and find / -name .Trash
and nothing comes up

Any other ideas?

Try ~/.local/share/Trash

Use a file browser to examine the likely hidden directories in your home directory. It's going to be there some place.

In KDE, the trash can is an applet. Right click on a blank part of the task bar at the bottom of the screen and select "add applet to panel". You should find the trash can in the list of applets.

However, you are running from a liveCD... do you have any writeable media mounted? If you're just running from the CD, the space will be 0 because it's read-only.

Same thing applies to gnome, except it's called "waste basket" (at least it is in Ubuntu)

I downloaded the phlak livecd. The trash can is visible from the file manager. Open the file manager (the "top secret" folder icon on the panel). Look at the left pane. Voila.
