Trying to remove magical .Trash-0 folder after reinstalling FC12

Hi all, well this is something of a random problem. A few months back I decided to try and install Ubuntu alongside Fedora, purely to see what all the fuss is about. My original partition setup was as follows:

160Gb sda
210Mb sda1 - boot
106Gb sda2 - home
51Gb sda3 - Fedora
2.1Gb sda4 - swap

To make room for Ubuntu I had to resize my Fedora partition and cut off 10Gb for sdb1. All went well, even managed to manually configure my grub.conf. Of course, Ubuntu being ever helpful insisted on using its own Grub2, and without realising I allowed it to replace Fedora's grub on first boot, completely messing up my multiboot. The only thing it would allow me to do is boot Fedora in recovery mode and attempt to setup a fresh OS.

Anyway, long story for a simple problem, I know, but all this resulted in repartitioning to the above original setup. All went well, even SELinux helped out restoring correct permissions to problem folders shared while using Ubuntu. The only problem I have now is finding a .Trash-0 folder located inside /home. Nautilus won't allow me to do anything with this folder as I don't have permission, and when trying to go through a terminal with root, the folder doesn't even appear.

I'm really starting to enjoy using Fedora as my primary OS, and while I've learned much since using it, for the life of me I have no idea how to get rid of this apparently non-existent folder. Any help would be much appreciated. Cheers!

This might find it in a terminal...
Code:
find /home -name '*Trash*'
Then you should be able to get root privileges with su and delete it with rm.

Awesome! Worked like a charm thankies. Just wondering though, any idea why the folder wouldn't appear from a typical ls to /home, but turned up in a search? Trying to understand all kinds of crazy voodoo.

You did your ls with the -a option? If not, hidden files, which are those beginning with a dot won't appear.

Got'cha, cheers for the heads up. I was wondering where that partition was sending deleted items, so I guess I know now.
