Cannot delete folders in trash (solved)

I have two folders in my trash which contain mp3 files from my cd's. I cannot delete them. Apparently I don't own the folders or have permission?
Cheers, Chris

Happy New Year everyone.

Does anyone have experience with g'mic. I've followed the instructions and placed the file in the plug ins folder but it doesn't show up in Gimp. Even when I do a plug in search?
