Re: Unable to delete files from trash

Hi, I had the same problem a few weeks back (The first method didn't work so I tried the second). Firstly, just try plugging in the drive, then opening Nemo and 'Empty Rubbish Bin'. In Cinnamon I used Nero to get rid of them. (in Mate, use Thunar I assume) The way I managed it - Open Nemo Right-cli...

Re: Unable to delete files from trash

Probably be logging out and back in (or reboot). As in, the files will be lone gone as a result of the format, and it'll likely just be a caching issue... Thanks for the reply. So the files are gone after restarting, but when I plug another USB back into the computer the files reappear in the trash...

Unable to delete files from trash

Hi,

I deleted some files from a USB flash drive, then reformatted the drive.
The files are still visible in the Trash, but I can't delete them (nor can I restore them).

Any suggestions on how I can force their deletion?
(I'm running Linux Mint 19.)

Thanks,
David

When starting I get rapidly moving text and something (?) that reads like "PCIe Bus error" I turned the computer off, and then went to adv...

Please suggest me an OS, too

I've recently acquired an old laptop (Compaq 6720s) that was destined for scrap, and now I need to choose an OS. I'd prefer to stick with Linux Mint (which is what I use for my desktop). However I'm tempted to go for something more lightweight - I've had a quick look at Lubuntu 18.04, and having rea...

Re: Wifi only available after restarting computer

I tried 17.3, 18.0, 18.1 last year - wifi would work when booting from the Live USB, but not when installed.
Also tried Ubuntu (17.4)

After having some wifi success with 18.2, I'm a bit wary of installing 18.3 instead (unless I can find another SSD/HDD to install it on)

When I turn the computer on, I can't connect to the wifi network, although I can connect when I restart the computer. However, on the last few occassions I nee...

Re: Broadcom WiFi works in live image but not after installation

I had this problem earlier in the year. I tried Linux Mint 17.2, 17.3, 18.0, 18.1 and Ubuntu 17.04 and encountered the same problem everytime. It was very annoying :( However, I recently downloaded and installed Lint Mint 18.2 and it seems to work. Although I have to restart the computer after turni...

Re: Wifi issue

Nope, that didn't work.
I'm assuming the latest Kernel is 4.4.0-75
(4.4.0-21 was installed previously, which I have now removed)

It works without problems when Linux Mint (Sarah) is booted from USB, but not when the OS is installed. Any help would be much appr...
