I have captured and edited DV video in Kino Ubnutu. Now I have files that I no longer need. However I can't find a way to delete them. I'm new to Linux.

Press ALt-F2 and type, gksu nautilus. Then navigate to the directory the files are in and delete them. Next you need to clear out trash in /rootts trash bin. Navigate to /root and press Ctrl-h, this will reveal the hidden files and directories. Go to .local/share/Trash/files and delete everything in that directory. Next go to .local/share/Trash/info and delete everything in that directory.

Thank you Jim, that worked a treat. No wonder I wasn't able to work it out myself. I've heard just how helpful the Linux community can be but frankly I was sceptical, It was good to be proved wrong. Once again thank you.
