    When I click and drag a file or folder to the trash icon, the file is deleted, however, the icon does not display any trash and when right clicking, the "Empty Trash" option is grayed out.

    The trash folder does exists and all deleted files appear when the following command is entered into Terminal.

    Code:
    cd ~/.Trash; ls -a;
    
    I have tried to repair the permissions (read somewhere that this was a solution), but the problem persists.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Nevermind, issue resolved. Deleted .Trash folder and then restarted (allowed OSX to recreate the folder).
