http://askubuntu.com – As I understand "deleting a file or folder" basically > moves it into the hidden .Trash folder. Then to empty the trash the command is issued and it is deleted. ---correct me if wrong--- I can sudo rm -rf (the trash) and it goes away quickly but to delete it using the file manager it takes forever. Example: I had saved a 4.2Gb ISO on an external USB drive and when I wanted to delete it I just did the right click and delete. Its gone! Now, I want to empty the trash, when clicked you get a prompt about "are you sure?" then you click yes and go about my business. 5 minutes later its still not e (HowTos)
