I am lately having a terrible time trying to delete any files. I keep on getting Trash is full empty Trash manually messages.
I delete everything I can see (including showing hidden files). I add more Trash-1000 files on other partitions (root section). I rm -rf everyone of those files both in $ and #. I check to be sure of permissions and they all have full username permissions. Still that problem.
The interesting thing is that I can delete while in superuser.
The thing I want to know is: Is that because S-U places it in a different Trash and/or could there be a user corruption problem with my regular Trash and how do I fix it?

Not sure what happened. Seems to have fixed itself, could have been a glitch in the file system that after a few reboots just self corrected.
The nautilus idea wouldn't have worked as by using sudo had cleared everything there was. We are have very hot weather here and the room I am in is warm,. so that could be also part of the problem.
