Look in as root user Use file manager in the super user mode
and if it is the trash bin is of a user go to home directory of the user
and the trash bin is there mostly you can do nearly every think with
the contents of the trash bin but some times you to put back first to the place where it come from


best of luck

What desktop do you use ? It's easier to just bring up konqueror or the gnome equivalent and use the little button for the trash. The ls -A will bring up all the hidden dir for you.

Delete all the files of these directors:

/home/tdec/.local/share/Trash/files
/home/tdec/.local/share/Trash/info

Of course <tdec> is my user name, just replace with yours.

just do the following if you want to delete all files in a Trash.

rm -rf .local/share/Trash

and that is all. Hope it helps.
