Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 443150
Impossible empty trash + .gvsf permission denied!
Last modified: 2015-03-03 17:32:27 EST
Description of problem:
I wasn't able to empty my trash (I think permissions problems)... I tried
chmodding files on it, rm -rf with root privileges..... etc.. nothing to do...
Now I deleted my user account and created a new one (all using root desktop)..
but the old home directory is still there appearing empty...and I can't delete it!
Trying to delete:
[root@karlpc home]# ls -a
. .. carlo karl lost+found
[root@karlpc home]# rm -rf carlo
rm: impossibile rimuovere `carlo/.gvfs': Permission denied
Permission denied... :D ROOT!!! :D
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rawhide fully updated
It happened compiling some software from source.. I don't remember if I was
using superuser... but in fedora 8 never had problems in deleting source code
Most likely the gvfs-fuse-daemon is still running. Does
ps ax | grep gvfs-fuse-daemon yield anything ? If yes, try killing the instance
that is keeping /home/carlo/.gvfs busy.
ok, killed the process, and rm -rf deleted the directory...
I don't know if is the case to close the bug, because the trash issue was
annoying and won't fix by simply rebooting or killing processes...
So I leave open this bug, hoping you have a look at its code..
One question: usually in these cases I used to delete with rm -rf
/home/user/.Trash ..... but now, where is the trash directory?? I wasn't able to
