Xfce on Slackware64 14.1: weird Trash problems


Hi,

I'm experiencing a weird problem with my Trash. First, Trash just disappeared, so the only option I had in Thunar was to definitely erase a file. I restarted my desktop, and now the Trash appears again... but every file in it is read-only. I can't empty the Trash, the option is greyed out.

1. WTF?!?

2. This ever happen to anyone here?

3. Suggestions?

1. Yes.

2. No.

3. What gezley said, run fsck on the filesytem. Other than that I would examine the ~/.local/share/Trash directory and look for clues.

please let us know what you find

in dolphin under places Trash folder is empty, under ~/.local/share/Trash there are a couple items, what's the difference between these two Trash folders?

Since you're using RAID you may want to check how the file systems are being mounted (ro/rw) and that the array is working properly.

The inconsistent behavior may be due to different RAID components being accessed.

A simple reboot solved the problem. Guess we'll never know. I've been working on this machine everyday since Slackware 13.37, and this never happened before. Well, all's well that ends well.
