I can't seem to empty my Trash Bin. I right click and select 'empty trash', but nothing happens. Any Ideas?...

    Sure.
    Code:
    sudo rm -rf ~/.Trash/*
    Be very careful with that command. If you press Enter too soon, you could end up deleting your whole system!

    Alternatively, Alt-F2
    Code:
    gksudo nautilus
    Control-L
    Code:
    /home/bayvista/.Trash
    and then right-click and delete everything there.
