I have files with elevated permissions in the thrash folder. Wiping the path with
rm doesn’t seem safe, if some hidden files are stored there.
The most promising solution is this askubuntu.com answer, but I don’t understand what the full command is.
sudo HOME=/home/<hour-home-dir> trash-empty
trash-cli is in the Fedora repos.
UPDATE: Please also consider giving guidance for clearing the trash folders of mounted external drives (in
/mnt/backup/.Trash-1000/, and so).
