Then run:

gksudo nautilus

And you can clean up as you desire. Be VERY careful.

Thank you foe such quick response.
The command “gksudo nautilus” just open the to Desktop.
When extracting a window opens-up with folders on the left and files on the right, opening
home folder “luis” the files all starting with “.” that’s where the .eteks is and where I made the
mistake, don’t know to access this folder to correct error.

Yes but using the nautilus (now running as roo) you can delete the files, or whatever you like, as you please.
