delete /home/.Trash-0


for some reason, I can't delete /home/.Trash-0

The 'Move to Trash' menu item in Konqueror only produces an error. I'm logged-in as super user.

Anyone please?

I don't know what this .Trash-0 directory is, but try opening a terminal as the root user
rm -rf /home/.Trash-0
What happens then? Otherwise, logout of KDE and boot directly into the console and run that command. It might be being used with KDE.

Problem solved. I rebooted and it went away.

I should have mentioned that I deleted some files from my /home/username/ directory and it created /home/.Trash-0/ which contained all that I deleted. It drove me nuts because I couldn't get rid of the many GB that was in there. I needed the space badly!

A strange Linux moment, I guess.

Thanks for the reply!
