I am fairly new to Linux, Ubuntu, etc. I am running LUbuntu 18.04.5 on an i386 machine. Please note that I need to be given explicit instructions whenever I have to use Terminal (command line).
I want to use Terminal to access an external USB HDD (which has NTFS file system) and then manually empty the trash folder there - and I don't know how to even begin doing that. My parallel attempt to add an 'Empty Trash' item to the right-click-menu in the GUI of the file manager (which is PCManFM 1.2.5) has been unsuccessful so far. (See How do you access an external USB hard drive and empty its Trash folder? ).
What Terminal commands can I use for accessing the external HDD and then manually emptying the trash folder there (which is named .Trash-1000)?
sudo rm -r /media/paul/My Passport/.Trash-1000
