[ubuntu] problems with Trash folder

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Originally I had issues with my trash folder because often times I would want to batch delete and I would get complaints about the Trash reaching maximum capacity despite nothing being in there. Not sure what to do I deleted the folder from root and now I can't delete anything. When I try to access the trash I get "A folder named /home/username/.local/share/Trash already exists." or "Could not enter folder /root" And when I try to delete files it tells me that whatever "Already exists as Folder" -- not sure really what to do. Any suggestions? I have a feelin (Hardware)
