Where else can I find files that are showing up in my trash can?
Ubuntu 12.04, Headless, VNC, Gnome-fallback.
I have a stubborn trash can that I suspect is from deleting files from command that belonged to me, but was deleted as root. I think the deleted files were from another drive, but I'm not sure. I delete stuff as root all the time and it doesn't show up in my trash, but something is different with this scenario.
The common answer is:
sudo rm -rf ~/.local/share/Trash/*
But this command does not work. My user and the root user do not have any files or folders in the
.local/share/Trash folder, yet my user trash can has big files that I cannot find on the system to delete.
