kopete


I just downloaded Kopete. I ended up deleteing it. From my system, it went to my trash. Now , I'm unable to delete the files from my trash, it tells me I have no permission to change or delete these files. I have even logged on as root , and tried . Still, cant delete the files. It says the file owner is 1000. Still new to linux. Can anyone help?
Thanks , in advance for any help.

Try logging in as root and chaging the owner and group names to you then delete them.

chwon me my_files
chgrp me my_files
rm -f my_files
