I need help... I had an extension that wouldn't uninstall - so I moved its file to trash. However, once the file was sent to trash; the trash couldn't be emptied... I read that If I deleted my trash file it would empty it out and repair itself upon needing to be used by another program or if I sent anything to it.
This is where it's weird. I can still sent to trash, but whatever gets sent to the trash is gone into oblivion. Trash says its empty, and whatever I send to trash cannot not be found. Moreover, I still have a trash icon on my desktop. It just doesn't hold anything.
Also, I know it was a ridiculous decision to delete an operational file and function from my system. I don't need to be told how dumb it was. So please no trolls. I am pretty new to Linux.
Overall, I just need help repairing my trash file/folder. I'm running Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver. Loving it. But this one thing is driving me crazy. I have searched for the answer everywhere - But it seems no one has been this stupid before.
Here's what the output from
ls -ld ~/.local/share/Trash:
$ ls -ld ~/.local/share/Trash drwx------ 4 syrefire root 4096 Dec 13 13:57 /home/syrefire/.local/share/Trash
