Hi - I have to warn people that the information on this thread (while well intended) is not precise enough warrant putting the code into Automator/appelscript or terminal.

I just spent 3 hours repairing things. I found the solution to my final problem in one line on another site. It worked for me to get my trash back to normal because I kept getting a message saying that what I was deleting was not reversible (no trash access). The 'Enable Trash' info presented does not work!. Again, this worked for ME.

1. enter this into Terminal exactly as I have here:

sudo rm -r ~/.Trash

2. if it works for you, you will be asked for your system password. Enter it.
3. Force quite, Finder. It will restart automatically.
4. You should be able to then command-delete as normal (sending items to trash).
