Debian :: Full But Empty Trashcan - Same Message AgainJun 1, 2011
I'm on Debian 6.0
and 4 TB of HDD
Compaq Presario 9000
My problem is all of a sudden get a message on deleting files that the trashcan has reached its full capacity and needs to be emptied manually. After emptying the trashcan in Dolphin I still can't delete the files I want and get the same message again and again. I have shut down the computer before, but today that didn't seem to help at all. Also it seems a bit drastic to shut down the machine everytime this happens. Is there perhaps another 'manual' way of emptying the trashcan? I have found a post recommending to rm -in my case- the directory in question in the terminal, which worked, but it doesn't solve the trashcan problem.
