    Emptying the trash


    (My apologies if this was posted before, but I don't see my
    earlier posting). I have Suse 11.4 and use KDE. My trash
    can is getting rather full; how do I empty it?

    If you have an icon for it, right-click and choose empty. Or double-click to open, and choose empty.
    If there is no icon, open a terminal. Do this:
    Code:
    cd ~/.local/share
    ls
    If you have a listing for Trash, delete it from there with:
    Code:
    rm -rf Trash

    Thanks. I had tried a right-click first but there is no option of emptying,
    hence my question. But the other advice, looking at .local/... etc got me
    there and I was able to wipe the lot.
