Trashed Messages beta and now I can't empty trash because of iChat
Title says it all,
I used TrashMe app to remove Messages beta and without noticing It moved iChat to trash can too. When I tried to empty the trash, it wasn't possible.
Now I can't move iChat out of the trash can nor empty it.
I hear you can install from OS X Lion disk but I was looking for a way to force empty. Tried the command line and it shows this:
.Trash/iChat.app/Contents/PlugIns/iChatDockTile.docktileplugin/Contents/MacOS/iChatDockTile: Permission denied
In Windows I know it is because you're trying to empty while using an app. How do I quit the app so I can empty the trash???

The most effective method for complete app removal is manual deletion:

Tried terminal and didn't work.
I decided to try a restart again and worked, so I guess that was the only thing I could do.
Thanks for the reply. I'm checking your method of removing apps instead of using those commercial apps.
