Where did you get a hold of Mint 18.2? The rest of us are on Mint 18.1

Can I ask why you deleted ~/.cache and /tmp/* on a running system (which will be using both)? Did you at least close all your open graphical applications before doing so? Did you delete any other directories such as ~/.local?

Note that /tmp should be refreshed on reboot.

Have you tried rebooting the system?

you don't need sudo to delete your ~/.cache or in fact anything in your home.
if you have a habit of using caja with superuser privileges, chances are your $HOME's permissions are messed up.

replying traceback warning

Many thanks for the replys about traceback warning on desktop.

Sorry I ment Linux Mint 18.1 accidentally typed 18.2.

In reply to hydrurga, no I didn't delete ~/.local and all the folders appear to exist.

The warning appears on each boot. I can open and view the trash folder. However previously I had a problem with the trash permissions, this disappeared.
After pressing OK, or closing the warning window the the Menu button in the tray appears.

traceback problem now solved

Problem Solved

In root sudo caja, I changed the owner of the files Trash, info & files from root to me. I also changed others from the ownership of root to me.

The warning has vanished.
