Debian :: Full But Empty Trashcan - Same Message Again
Jun 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.
After ripping a dvd I removed the large file succesfully with rm command. since then I get a message "trashcan full, empty manually" when I want to trash a small file. Can is empty and has a capacity of 500 MB How to get the can operational again?
On my home test 5.5 VM, after converting to ext4, moving items to the trashcan in Gnome results in nothing showing in the desktop Trashcan. Looks like a bug in gnome-vfs' support (or lack of it) for ext4, or have I got some other more subtle corruption going on? It's of little importance to me as I'm rarely in the GUI, but it would be nice to see confirmation or otherwise.
Well I'll start off with the recent changes I've made. I have three hard drives in my PC, two of which are formated NTFS. I recently installed Storage Device Manager and changed a few options around so they auto-mount of start up. Well when I did this, and wanted to delete files off those drives, I suddenly was being promoted that I must delete them permanently or not all at (wouldn't go into the trash)
I added the lines to FSTAB: uid=1000,gid=1000 0 1
So for example my secondary drive is:
And also added .Trash-1000 folders in each of the two NTFS drives.
When I delete items off one of the two NTFS disks they go to the trash... I don't get the "delete forever" prompt and I can actually see them in the trash bin.
But when I empty the trash the icon remains that of the "full" trash, despite when I open it there being no trash in it.
I've been getting this error message:"The configuration defaults for GNOME Power Manager have not been installed correctly. Please contact your computer administrator."a few times, and it turns out to be because of low disk space. No worry, I empty the trash uninstall unneeded programs and clean out the downloads folder that filled up my disk. And all is ok. But not this time.Since I can't use X, I delete stuff from the terminal, and also make sure to clean out the .Trash in both /home and /root. But still the disk is full. I delete more stuff, but it doesn't even seem to go to .Trash. It disappears, but no more disk space.
Using Fedora 14 with Gnome 2.3 Desktop utilizing Compiz and Emerald theme manager. When I empty the trash, the icon is still the FULL Trash icon. I tried using different Emerald Themes, and different Icon sets, but still the Trash Icon stays full. I checked the trash folder in $HOME/.local/share/trash and found nothing, no hidden files.
Recently I moved to trashcan a big amount of data to be erased, but when I tried to erase the data it refuses to do it and keeps telling me I have to manually clean the trashcan, so anyone can tell me how I do it? opensuse 11.4 KDE 4.6!
I finally upgraded my P4 3ghz to a dual core and replaced the onboard Intel video with a nice new Nvidia, all fine except my trashcan icon has vanished from the desktop, its enabled in gconf-editor, Ive tried disabling it, re-booting etc, but it wont come back!
I've been using ubuntu earlier and when connecting to a samba shared folder it appeared in /home/user/.gvfs folder. I can browse the samba share, it's ok, but I prefer Midnight Commander than Nautilus when copying files. So, where does it reside in Debian?
Occasionally I get on lenny an empty system tray when logging in KDE, no right click menu, no icons. The previous session had been closed regularly. Is there a way to properly shutdown in the circumstances and to fix the problem?
(I don't know whether this has something to do with this but, in the past, on typing by mistake the print screen key, I got multiple instances of ksnapshot launched automatically and had to delete the directory under 'home' ~/.kde/share/config/session and the file ~/.kde/share/config/ksmserverrc to prevent this from repeating itself at every KDE login. The empty tray issue, however did not arise immediately after this, so it might be unrelated.)
I tried four cdrs and I can't get my dvd rom or dvd-rw to list the contents even though k3b says it was successful. If I open k3b it see the cdr and say sessions 1 appendable yes. I burned the cdr as multisession. I can only view the contents of the cdr by doing a continue multisession while in k3b. I'm using squeeze and kde.
I have downloaded d4x download manager program but I do not know its dpendencies. I tried to install the single deb file with "Gdebi Package installer" but it showed an error of dependency. I downloaded that file too which itself could not be installed due to the same problem. The method of one by one file downloading was exhausting. Is there any program that accepts "d4x_126.96.36.199-5_amd64.deb" as input and givres me a full list of dependencies that must be saitisfied proior to installing the program with a single click? I want to give that list to a download manager.
I am a final year student doign Computer systems engineering and just been introduced to linux. While still strugling to catch up with the commands, I am now given an assignment under shell scripting.I seriously am strugling to understand this question, can you please assist me.Here follows the assignment:

I come from a PCLinuxOS tradition (about two years), and a great full backup program was mklivecd, where I would use a GUI to make a bootable livecd/dvd with all my system which was handy in case something went wrong. Every week or so I would create a DVD ready for emergencies. After looking at the options in Debian (using Squeeze, and very happy with it for a few months now), I'm wondering if there is something similar. Remastersys, it seems, doesn't work with GRUB2 (only with GRUB-legacy), and Partimage makes images, not bootable CDs/DVDs. What is your full-backup/bootable system strategy, something, if possible, as easy/straightforward as mklivecd?
I've been trying to work out how to get a "full" debian installer (ie, not a netinst installer but as much as you'd find on say, the first CD) onto a bootable USB stick.Most of the tutorials I've seen work with the netboot installers only.The installer works until the "Detect and mount CD-ROM" step where it wants to mount a CD drive. Won't accept /dev/sdb or whatever device the USB stick is.
Using live-magic with the option to include the installer.The installer works until the "Detect and mount CD-ROM" step where it wants to mount a CD drive, as above. This confuses me, since why would live-magic include this capability if it didn't work for a USB stick?
Upon booting, the existing grub menu shows the Debian OS, but I also have Ubuntu installed on the same hard disk. It does not show in the menu. Previously I had Debian, Ubuntu, and Mint. In Ubuntu config file (menu.lst) I wanted to delete Mint and an old Ubuntu. I did so. In doing this I must have removed the 'full' menu.lst,leaving only Debian. So now I cannot boot into the new Ubuntu. I presently have only two OS on the hard disk: Debian and Ubuntu. I cant see Ubuntu, How do I correct this problem?
I recently installed Lenny and used the "Guided - Use Entire Disk" option.I made separate partitions for root, /etc, /var, /home, /usr and swap.I trusted that the auto partitioner would choose sensible sizes but possibly that was a bad move, root is only 340Mb and is full.
If this has been covered before I couldn't find it.
What I'm "Not" Asking... I'm not asking about installing the CD image to a USB hard drive to boot a live install version. I've done that to see is my computer will boot from the USB and it does.
What I want to do is this:
An actual hard disk install of full featured Linux to a portable USB Hard Drive. I want to be able to plug in the USB HHD and go Linux. (Why you might ask? Fair enough. The laptop is my wife's computer and she says absolutely no to Linux.
I'm using the default GNOME file manager. But as a user I don't have any privileges to move files to/from the user folders to the system. I elevated my user to admin privileges, but this has no effect; I can't do any file management in the system area.
I can use the 'root terminal', but it would be much easier to use a GUI file manager--even drag 'n drop.How do I get the file manager to open up? I guessed one way to do this is to log in as 'Root' instead of user. But login won't allow an 'other' login when I try to use 'root' as a username. Is this the wrong approach? Dave
Using Debian Lenny Ice Weasel was crashing when I try to use the full screen in you tube videos, and sometimes I get logged out of Debian. And now when I try to watch a video it tells me I need to update flashplayer. How do I update flashplayer in Lenny. I tried this and I don't have the program installed. Do I need to add the backports to my sources.list first. Appreciate help in fixing this problem.
i'm trying to watch video on you tube. flash won't work for me anymore in full screen, so i'm trying the instructions from this web page: debian user forums - view topic - howto watch videos with only free software in debian'howto watch videos with only free software in debian'.install mozilla-mplayer, mplayer , the firefox extension greasemonkey and the script videos without flash auto for greasemonkey : videos without flash auto for greasemonkey when i try to watch you tube i get xine that trys to play the video, but it doesn't work. can i change this to use another player, or is that not going to help?
I'm currently running Testing/Sid on my machine with Fluxbox as my window manager.Yesterday I noticed that I was not getting full output from commands using lxterminal.First off I tried another terminal,which was the xfce4-terminal.The result being exactly the same,missing output.I have also tried re-generating my xorg.conf,and yes you guessed it no change.Getting desperate I also tried dpkg-reconfigure console-setup,still missing output from lxterminal.So to sum up why do I get the full output with xterm but not lxterminal which I have been using previously for some time.
It is just a question regarding ISO and the lack of -o loop or function of busybox.One can custom the ISO of debian-installer and make a syslinux config file having : vmlinuz of one normally running installed Debian distro, and keep the initrd of the iso regular debian-installer.I think it may be conflicting the vmlinuz kernel version and the installer of initrd.I am learning, so it may be completely wrong or kernel panic.
Earlier today I installed Debian Squeeze with Gnome off the 64-bit CD 1. I didn't have my ethernet connected and ended up only getting a pretty minimal desktop with not much installed besides Gnome. This bothered me, as I thought I could install the whole desktop off the CD. I reinstalled, this time with my Ethernet connected. This time it took much more time and gave me what I wanted, a complete desktop. Simply put, what do I need to install everything that I currently have without having my Ethernet plugged in?
I have a few Debian Squeeze installations which I perform upgrades on average on weekly basis. Last week one of my laptops, gave me this while all others did not, The following packages have unmet dependencies: gnome-desktop-environment: Depends: gnome-core (= 1:2.30+1) but 1:2.30+4 is to be installed. gnome: Depends: gnome-desktop-environment (= 1:2.30+4) but 1:2.30+1 is installed and it is kept back. The following actions will resolve these dependencies: Remove the following packages: 1) gnome Keep the following packages at their current version 2)gnome-accessibility [1:2.30+1 (now) 3) gnome-core [1:2.30+1 (now) Accept this solution? [Y/n/q/?] Has anyone encountered this? Is it safe to accept the proposal?

I have a single PC that has two hard disks in it. One is 250GB running Debian linux; the other 1TB running windows. I was switching between the two by going to the BIOS and changing the order of the hard disks to boot from. Both lived happily together in peaceful co-existance. Until....
Lately, I haven't been using Linux, so I decided to convert the 250GB to windows. So I put in the windows install CD, and it all started working fine, but when it came down to setting up a partition, Windows only recognized 130GB (out of the 250GB). I got confused so I decided to re-install linux. Linux recognizes the full 250GB; it recognized that there is a second hard disk running a different OS so the grub gave the option to boot from windows. So after a couple of reboots from both drives I decided to go ahead and install windows on the 250GB. Well again, windows only recognized 130GB, but this time, windows showed me another hard disk again with 130GB capacity. Apparently I stupid enough to proceed so now both hard disks - the 250GB and the 1TB - have capacity of 130GB each. And this is where I'm stuck.
I have tried fdisk, I have tried debug, but for some reason, windows can only recognize 130GB out of the entire disks; linux on the other hand recognizes the full capacity. I also used the seagate disk diagnostic tool (seatools for MS DOS) and it found no errors on either hard disk.
How can I reclaim the full capacity under windows?
This only started after the recent updates which included a lot of sysv stuff in Squeeze. I'm not talking the Gnome or Xwindows consoles, I'm talking the full-on type you get when you do the CTL-ALT-F2 type of console. before those updates, I had no trouble. Now I can't get back into the gui by pressing CTL-ALT-F7 as usual. All i get is just a black screen. I do have the nvidia proprietary driver installed using DKMS, and I am running the latest (I think) liquorix kernel.
I cannot get exim4 to actually deliver any "local delivery only; not on a network".But whatever I do in the config, all mail gets frozen with entries in the log file like:"root@empty R=nonlocal: Mailing to remote domains not supported"Maybe the problem is that there is no fqdn for the computer (and will never be). How can I enable local mail delivery?
I have an HP ProLiant DL560 server with Debian 6.0 installed and cannot figure out how to get the fans to run at anything except high. I have searched google and this site, but cannot find anything that works on Debian 6; the SLES packages will install, but don't do anything.

I just got Squeeze loaded on computer and getting several error message during boot up. Something about 368623 and 368761 PCI Bar 6 collision. This is a first for me on Debian OS. It happens so fast I can barely write it down. Is there a log I can access to see the entire entry?
When trying to install various packages, from backports presumably, I am getting the message, The following package cannot be authenticated!I have tried to add the keyring by installing apt-get install debian-backports-keyringand wget -O - http://backports.org/debian/archive.key | apt-key add -however I am still getting warned by apt. What am I doing wrong?
This is probably a pretty basic question - a little embarrassing because I am not totally new to Debian. I am installing Squeeze on my Acer netbook. I am using an iso image that is a few months old, so once the system was installed I ran aptitude update and upgrade which fetched a lot of upgrades. During the install a message pops up regarding initramfs-tools that states: To improve boot speed and avoid some complications, video drivers are no longer included in intramfs by default (MODULES=most). --maximillian attems <firstname.lastname@example.org> Mon, 05 Apr 2010 /tmp/tmpvNAm1I (END)My really embarrassing question is: How do I get past this message and proceed with installation of the files? I know I've had to contend with this in past, but for some reason I am drawing a blank on how to exit this message
My computer: 3 year old cheapish box, Gigabyte board with onboard video and sound. Cat5 cabled to Linksys wired router to a cable modem. Debian 6.0 Stable. Network installation.
This didn't happen from the initial installation but I now get an error message each time I get the updates.
I first see the red update notification icon top right of Gnome desktop. I click on it, enter root password at prompt. Click the install updates button on the update manager window. The software progress bars show me the download progress but then I get the following errors.
An error has occurred and installing has been aborted. Error Message: subprocess installed post installation script returned error exit status 1
I cancel the messages. The notification icon then turns to the reboot icon. If I start the update manager again from the System menu it shows me that my system is up to date, so I suspect the update has taken place. But why am I getting the error messages. This now happens every time I see the new updates icon. Apart from that everything works fine.
I include my source list in case this helps. # # deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.1a _Squeeze_ - Official i386 NETINST Binary-1 20110320-15:03]/ squeeze main
