In checking disk space I found in /.home/.trash-0/files 34.6G of files I
can't delete. Tried tagging files and deleting but they come right back.
How do I clean these files out?
Open a terminal and do `rm .trash-0/* -rf`
maybe cd to that folder first and then do the rm otherwise a careless
typo in the rm command might delete more than you intended :)
Might be worth using the front-end to all that 'junk' (e.g. ~/.thumbnail and
/tmp). In KDE: Kleandisk, under "Utilities" (probably kleandisk in the
command-line). I haven't got experience with it, but I heard about people
who used/d it.
