I've just installed Linux Mint 13, with a partition for / (including /home) and one for user data, which is mounted into /mnt/homedata. I created a folder in homedata called "iain" and chown'ed it, then made symlinks for documents, music, etc. from /home/iain to /mnt/homedata/iain.
Now I've started filling it up, I've found when deleting anything from my home folders, I get the warning "Cannot move file to the Rubbish Bin, do you want to delete it immediately?". I get this whether I delete it from the /home folder, or straight from the /mnt/homedata folder.
I searched on Google and found this page
which suggests checking the ownership and permissions of /.local/share/Trash, but I can't find this folder (and yes I've turned "show hidden files" on
). Where should the folder be? Under /home/iain, under /mnt/homedata/iain, or in the root? Or somewhere else?
