For the Trash...
Authored by: renderhead on Jan 21, '05 04:48:57PM
To apply my above hint to items already in the trash, use:
sudo chflags -R nouchg ~/.Trash
To empty the trash entirely, add a simple
rm -f ~/.Trash/*
I'll bet someone who knew their applescript could write up a simple "Force Empty Trash" menu item based on those two commands.
