I have this game that doesn't have an uninstall mode, so to remove I trashed but when I attempt to empty the bin it tells me it can't be done because this or that file is locked. I know how to unlock files (get info, etc.) but his there a way to it that doesn't involve going into all this folders and unlocking them one at a time? In another forum someone suggested I use terminal type sudo rm and drop the files to be deleted afterwards but when i did that, terminal showed the following: rm: /Users/brunosales/.Trash/To Be Deleted/: is a directory then i was told to try man rm in the terminal and i got the following: RM(1) BSD General Commands Manual RM(1) NAME rm, unlink -- remove directory entries SYNOPSIS rm [-dfiPRrvW] file ... unlink file DESCRIPTION The rm utility attempts to remove the non-directory type files specified on the command line. If the permissions of the file do not permit writing, and the standard input device is a terminal, the user is prompted(on the standard error output)for confirmation. The options are as follows: -d Attempt to remove directories as well as other types of files. -f Attempt to remove the files without prompting for confirmation, regardless of the file's permissions. If the file does not exist, do not display a diagnostic message or modify the : finally someone told me that to remove a directory I should try rm -rf/directory which i followed by dragging the files to be deleted and got this: rm: illegal option -- / usage: rm [-f | -i] [-dPRrvW] file ... unlink file so, if anyone has a conclusive solution to this pain in the ass problem please pass it on and put an end to this frustration.
