I'm new to Ubuntu and programming and to this forum (first post!). So I'm usually very careful about everything I do, because I'm so afraid of making a mistake and breaking something beyond repair. So here's the thing:
I've recently started learning Java and installed eclipse Oxygen on my Ubuntu 16 (32 bits). A few days ago I noticed that there's a folder named "eclipse" in my trash can that won't disappear even when I empty the trash. I tried removing it using the GUI (right click, remove), but an error message followed, telling me this:
"Failed to delete the item from the trash".
I wonder if it's okay to try to forcefully delete the eclipse folder (using the command
rm -rf ~/.local/share/Trash/filename, as I've seen in other posts in this forum), or if I should just leave it there. I mean, maybe it's part of how eclipse works, a way to retrieve deleted projects or something...
So, I just want to know if it's okay to try deleting it with this command:
rm -rf ~/.local/share/Trash/
