I know about the dangers of using root access so please forego the lectures. I try to be careful and will be doubly so from now on.
I was using the file browser with root access in order to change some file permissions. During the process I deleted some files (I should say that I out them in the trash). Little did I know that the files would go to the trash as root and now I can't remove them because I don't have the permission to read them but I don't know how to access them to change the permissions because I don't know how to get into the trash as root. All I get is a message saying that:
This location could not be displayed.
Sorry, could not display all the contents of
trash:///: Operation not supported
I have searched around to try to find posts about it but I've only found outdated information about a hidden file in the root directory. That doesn't seem to apply any more so I'm stuck with a file in my trash that I can't remove and can't gain access to.
I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 64bit on an ASUS x401a laptop.
