When I attempt to empty my trash (FC8) to free hard disk space, I get the following message (the filename info is ommited for brevity):
"ERROR WHILE DELETING - ...you do not have permissions to modify its parent folder."
How can I establish (and maintain) administrative privileges in the FC8 GUI desktop environment?
NOTE: I sometimes get a similar "non permission" message when I attempt to perform other tasks in the FC8 desktop GUI (like modifying or deleting one or more files). I do know how to use the terminal's command-line method for accessing and/or modifying/deleting files/directories.
