    Hi when I want to delete something this screen came and write to my user password but file not into trash can delete immediately. Update my iTunes app but old apps never go trash can either. I can't move any files to Trash. Anyone know how to change this or this is Lion bug? Im using 10.7.1.

    you can always delete trash items in terminal. Go to cd ~/.trash to access the folder...see whats in there and rm it.

    I found a solution; If anybody can't move any files to trash make this;

    Run Disk Utility -> Repair Disk Permissions

    Then try this method I found online.

    1. Reboot the computer.
    2. Login with the troubled user account
    3. Open 'Terminal'
    4. Type:

    sudo rm -frv ~/.Trash

    Note: This removes the old ".Trash" directory and all files and folders in it.

    3. Type:

    mkdir -v ~/.Trash

    Note: This creates a new ".Trash" directory in your home folder.

    4. Type:

    killall Finder

    Note: This kills/restarts Finder

    5. Close Terminal.

    6. Reboot Computer. Log in as the 'hopefully fixed' user.

    See if the trash works now.
