Hi all :)
I have a strange problem. I can not find the location of the "Trash Bin". When I do a search for the files inside trash (deleted files) they can't be found. What's worse is that even re installing (as i had to do a few times lately) will not fix this ether ... which is strange.
So, where is the "location" of the trash bin in paldo so I can get to teh"root" of the problem ;)

The trash for your home is stored in ~/.local/share/Trash. In earlier versions of GNOME, ~/.Trash has been in use.

Thank you for that information :)
The weird thing is that ~/.local/share/Trash is empty! Even navigating (as root) from the terminal reveals only two empty directories in side trash.
Hmmmmm ....

The files inside my trash bin are from an external usb hard drive so i will have to investigate this further.

Edit!
As i suspected, the files in my trash bin were from an external drive. After deleting the files it's all good :)
