Can`t delete a file! Answered

I can`t delete a file named libgnashplugin.so. That file is really getting on my nerves because it`s killing my flash player. It just grays out the Move To Trash button. I have Linux Ubuntu 8.10. Thanks!

I've had this problem before, and all I had to do was restart the computer and it would delete. Otherwise you need to get a file shredding program.

Hmmm... What about a command that wipes the info inside the file (safedelete)?

ARG! Never mind, Safedelete is getting annoying.

I have no idea what a *.so file is/does, but try killing a process that has that name (im sure linux has a version of program manager.....)

Doesn`t work, but anyway:

  • libgnashplugin.so is the file that shows the Gnash (GNU flash player) plugin.
  • I don`t know what a .so file is, but that probably doesn`t matter.

Done and not working. Besides:

  • You can`t log in as root.
  • There`s no linux version of mcaffee.
