How I can remove trash? [SOLVED]

Post by HaMi »

Mint 17 Xfce.
I add new themes for cairo-clok from Screenlets. For root-rights first I install nautilus, and by command "sudo nautilus" was possible to drop new themes, usr > share > screenlets > clock > themes. Some of them was broken, so I remove them, but now those files are in the trash, but impossible to remove them even as root.

Assuming that your Trash folder is in the same place as it is in Nemo, this has always worked for me:

Code: Select all

sudo rm -rf ~/.local/share/Trash/files/*
Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamon - 64bit
