I use GNOME in Ubuntu for windows management. A few days back I deleted a directory and it got stuck in the trash can. I mean literally. I could not permanently remove it from trash. It was one of those directories which had files whose permissions did not allow me to remove it.
I was then looking to see where the trash is stored and finally found it lurking in my home directory under
I used the following find command to find it:
find . -name Trash -print
The actual trashed files/directories are located under
Once, I found this out, I was able to remove it permanently with:
sudo rm -r <dir-to-be-removed-permanently>
