Ubuntu :: Unable To Delete Folder (.fuse_hidden* File)?


I am running the latest version of Ubuntu (Ubuntu 11.04) which i setup as a dual boot OS with Windows XP SP3. I was listening to my MP3s using the Banshee music player on Ubuntu. My MP3s reside on an NTFS drive (which I mounted in Ubuntu to hear the MP3s). Via the Banshee player I deleted all songs from a particular folder and thought nothing of it until I later booted into Windows.

I saw the folder that had the songs I had deleted the songs and and thought I'd delete the folder as well except that I couldn't. It said the file might be corrupted. I logged backed into Ubuntu (Windows XP was shutdown not hibernated as I remember hearing that on Hibernating, you can't properly delete/copy files on Windows partitions). In Ubuntu too, I wasn't able to delete this folder - either via the Folder explorer or via terminal. I see a file named ".fuse_hidden0000041b00000017" along with some other files I had deleted (in Turquoise colour). I didn't see any posts in this forum with a help on resolving this issue

Fedora :: Allow User To Save/edit/delete Documents In A Folder But Not Delete That Folder?
Recently I setup a system for a non-technical user. He is only using Firefox, Pidgin and OpenOffice for about 2 hours a day. I have created a folder "/home/jim/myFiles" where he can save his document files. But Jim has accidentally deleted his myFiles folder on 2 occasions. He had intended to delete a file in that folder. Is there a way to lock the folder so that the user and create/read/write documents in that folder but not delete the folder itself?

Fedora :: Unable To Delete Folder From Root
I have a folder "scratchbox" created by a user "hari" (which is cross-compilation toolkit, and creates soft-links if it might ). Now I deleted the user "hari" by using userdel command. I didn't uninstall scratchbox from "hari" account. Now even when i login by root, i am unable to remove the "scratchbox" folder.

[harsh@ubuntu] lsattr -d /scratchbox/
-----------------e- /scratchbox/

I have created new user (harsh) and want to install the "scratchbox" again, but it won't allow.

harsh@ubuntu:~$ sudo rm -rf /scratchbox/
rm: cannot remove `/scratchbox/users/hari/proc/asound/Intel': Operation not permitted
rm: cannot remove `/scratchbox/users/hari/proc/asound/card0/oss_mixer': Operation not permitted

Ubuntu :: Unable To Delete Simple Backup Folder From Trash
I'm a beginner at backing up my Ubuntu system, but I've set Simple Backup to do a backup once a week. I deleted the oldest of these files, but now it's sitting in my Trash and I can't empty it. I get a permission denied error for the folders within the backup folder in the trash, yet I can't restore the folder either - Ubuntu says it 'failed to determine the original path' for the folder. I've just discovered this in Xubuntu Jaunty, but I'm confident the same will happen in any other WM I choose (I have several installed - I like variety ).

It's not a huge file, but it's hanging out there and I'd like to get it either deleted or restored. Possibly I oughtn't to have deleted it in the first place (it usually lives in /var/backup, which I can't access except as root). The files, which I probably deleted /as/ root, show up in my user trash rather than root's trash. I found the trash in ~/.local/share/Trash/files, but I'm not sure if just deleting them as root would be a good.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Delete A File
My problem is with a file that I can't delete, or move for that matter.

My dad was just randomly saving pictures and deiced he wanted to trash it. I don't know what he did, but in no longer has a file name, just the extension jpeg. Now I tried to right click it and move to the trash, but that option isn't highlighted, same for the rename. When I try to move it, it says the file does not exist. Here is what is says exactly:

Error stating file '/home/ashley/Desktop/Ed/dads files/TV Shows/isis (joanna cameron)/jpeg': No such file or directory

Ubuntu :: Unable To Delete Certain File From Wastebasket?
I have a problem deleting a certian file from a NTFS format 1TB USB HDD.

I attempted to MOVE the file (x.avi) to another directory on the same drive. On the MOVE process I accidently cancelled it. I then COPIED the file to another directory, this copied fine so i just need to delete the original x.avi.note; when I now attempt to move the original x.avi I get an error message: "Error while moving "x.avi". There was an error moving the file into /media/1TB/Movies. More details: Error moving file: Numerical result out of range. (I'm assuming a corrupted file)?

Lastly, every time i attempt to delete x.avi, it puts the file in the wastebasket but doesnt delete it; Every delete attempt makes a new file in the wastebasket (e.g. x, x.1, x.2, x.3, x.5 etc etc).

All other files/folders are fine its just this 1 folder/file.

Fedora :: Unable To Delete File
I am not able to delete any file. I am seeing following error when i am trying to delete. "The trash has reached its maximum size! Cleanup the trash manually.".

But Trash is already empty and the file i am trying to delete is only 28bytes.
the folders '~/.local/share/Trash/files' and '~/.local/share/Trash/info' are also empty and there permissions are also correct. file manager is dolphin.

i saw this problem happening after firefox crashed.

I found a file ~/.local/share/Trash/metadata with following content- [Cached] Size=18446744068999530549

After setting SIze=0, i am able to delete files.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Delete The Truncated Backup File
I was doing a big backup system this morning (in Ubuntu 10.10) which was taking some time, when there was an urgent task I needed to see to, so I rashly stopped the backup with CTRL-C. Later I found that this left the recipient directory with an input-output problem, so I could not delete the truncated backup file (or any other file in the directory). I tried all sorts of chmod procedures etc., including using the usually very successful RESCUE CD from a USB pen, but nothing seemed to cure the input-output problem.

In the end, in desperation, I copied all the other files into a new directory, and then deleted the original directory from Windows 7. (I use a multiple boot system.) Windows obviously does not observe the same permissions as Linux, and it obeyed without demure! So all is now well.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Unable To Delete Nippy File
Somehow I managed to create a file in /some/dir/ called "-v". How can I remove it? I've tried various and many methods... rm, rm *v, moving all files except that one and then issuing rm -rf but the problem is the -v file is being taken for a switch.

Ubuntu Servers :: Samba - Access Folder To Delete Or Restore From The Recycle Bin Folder
I'm using ubuntu server 9.10 for a home build NAS. Everything is working great just have one more thing to figure out. I have Samba set up to access my files and I set up a recycle feature so anything deleted will get moved to a Recycled folder. (I learned this the hard way after hitting delete key by accident while browsing the shares in windows. Lost 100 GB of data)

Now it is for the most part working but the permissions on folders isn't getting set right. If I delete a file in a share I can go to Recycle bin folder and delete the file for good. But if I delete a folder I can not access that folder to delete or restore from the Recycle bin folder. I have to chmod the folder before I can do anything with it. Anything I can change to get folders deleted via windows to have the right permissions when it is moved to the Recycle bin folder?

Ubuntu :: Delete Remaster Folder From Home Folder?
I have Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04 updated to 9.10 and have downloaded Remaster from Remastersys. I followed all of the instructions, which were simple enough. However, there must be some instructions missing as the process failed. Working with Remaster through Synaptic Manager, the iso was downloaded into my "home" folder into its own Remaster folder. It was not the iso, like you get when downloading a distro from the Internet, which downloads just an iso onto the Desktop. Inside the folder were a bunch of empty files (I know, because I opened them) and an iso . At this point the Remaster instruction stop. They do not say what to do with the other files, or what they have to do with the iso of my Ubuntu layout. So, like any other iso (once I knew which one was the iso of my setup), I double clicked on it and it ran me through the process of accessing the DVD to burn it. Which I did. I tested it and it failed with some kind of message to the effect that certain files were missing or it could not read it. So, I thought, I would have to do the 'hunt and peck' method and experiment a few times like I did with the ordinary distro downloads until I get it right. But first, I would have to dump the Remaster folder in the "home" folder since it took up so much space on my hard drive. Wrong! I come to find out it is in something called "root" and that I do not have permission to do anything with it but "copy" it. Great. Just great! Now what do I do. I tried to change permissions, but was not allowed to do that either. The only thing I could think of - and dread - was the idea of having to wipe my hard drive and go through the whole reinstall procedures, which takes me days, just because Remaster has locked itself into my system - and there is no 'back door' to get out of it.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Access Home Folder Through File Browser?
I can't access any of the sub-folders or files in my home folder on Ubuntu. I've checked the folder associations, that doesn't seem to be the issue. I've also opened the mimeapps.list file and the inode/directory association seems fine - inode/directory=nautilus-folder-handler.desktop;

I'm running Intrepid (8.10) (please don't ask me to upgrade! ) and the issue started after using Qtpfsgui 1.9.3 a couple of time to create HDR images. I guess Qtpfsgui broke an association somewhere, but where? I can access other folders, on Computer and Filesystem, but not on my home folder.

Ubuntu One :: Delete A Top Level Folder?
I'm using my free 2Gb of Ubuntu One space to back up some stuff and synch files between a laptop and desktop.

I synched a folder ok to try it out. Then I used the FAQ at

[URL]

to manually unsynchronise the folder as the right click option was greyed out.

But now I want to delete that folder from Ubuntu One using the Web site. The 'top level' folder does not have a 'delete' option. I've deleted everything under it but just want to get rid of the husk.
