    Right click on Panel and select Add Applets to Panel. Select Trash from list. It will add it on the Panel. Then click on icon and empty trash.

    And Howdy and Welcome to the forum.

    Thanks but I don't know what you mean by "panel". Sorry for my ignorance. I'm using lipus lite on an Acer Aspire ONe.

    Appreciate the help

    No luck

    Right clicked all over..nothing. The Aspire docs make no mention of trash or recycle folder which is strange. Guess I'm to dumb for linux. Oh well Thanks for your help anyway.

    Sorry, I don;t run Linpus. I have Xandros and EEEBuntu 3.0 on my Asus 900.

    How about trying this. Somewhere in Linpus you have a file manager. Open file manager and look for trash in r/h column in file manager either under Home or (/=root) folder. If youfind it. Left click it and look inside and delete what you wish that away. What Desktop/Windows Manager does Linpus run anyhows? My Xandros runs Icewm and my EEEbuntu runs Gnome.

    If you go here Inside the Aspire One | TuxRadar you can download a manual for the Aspire One that should tell you how to use Linpus.

    Open the file manager (e. g. on My Documents), choose Go -> Trash.
