By mistake I created a new folder in the "system files" (= free translation of "bestandssysteem" in dutch) instead in my personal folder.
Right click on the folder does not give me the possibility to delete it
How can I delete this folder ?
I am the only user of the computer, but with limited experience in Linux
Use Thunar 1.4.0
Probably you need to delete it as "root", and not as a "normal" user, because the folder is not located in you home folder.
Try like this:
- open a terminal
- type: gksu thunar
- type your password when asked
- delete the folder
I'm not sure if Mint has gksu installed by default.
If not, 2 alternatives:
- install it (on terminal: sudo apt-get install gksu)
- or, delete the folder directly in the terminal: sudo rm /path/to/the/folder
It worked and yes the gksu was installed by default
