I just upgraded to Ubuntu 14.04, and getting a bug where I can't move files to the trash. When I go to delete something it says file "can't be put in the trash. Do you want to delete it immediately?" I tried the instructions here: Can't move files to the trash but it didn't work. Not sure why this happened with the upgrade. Any help much appreciated!

.local/shareand delete the Trash folder. Make a new folder and name it Trash, then go into terminal and do this:
cd ~/.local/share sudo chown username:username Trash
usernameis your own username.
I have no idea why it doesn't work unless you remake the trash folder, but this way worked for me. Good luck if anyone else gets this bug!
