I have found /.trash=1000/  directory that has 2 directories files & info.  Contains 1.6GB trashed files.

How do I properly remove the trash on Openbox ?


I'm bit confused. Can't you simply open your file manager and empty trash bin? If not, do your have gvfs installed?

Actually, I'm the one who is really confused. The openbox filemanager does not have a trashcan. First version I have used like this.

Yes, gvfs is installed. Plenty of info about .Trash-1000 files and /home/user.local/share/trash as being trash holders but, nothing about removing the trash files.

I recently deleted 4 GB of old data and hard drive free space did not increase.

Arrrg.  My newbie-ism is showing :(


@lami07   -  Thank You !!   With your suggestion to check gvfs installed and it is and it got in the right direction.

Here is the command to empty user trash  gvfs-trash --empty

Here is the command to empty root trash sudo gvfs-trash --empty

Had 3.6 GB Free --> then 8.3 GB Free --> then 8.6 GB Free.

Again, Thank You !!!!! :)
