This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

What methods have you already tried to remove it?

A file should always be removable by removing it as root in the terminal with 'sudo rm', so in your case

sudo rm /usr/lib/ruby/1.9.1/rdoc/generator/template/darkfish/js/thickbox-compressed.js

This will prompt you for your password, and then the file will be removed

If this doesn't work, somethings definitely wierd
