    How do I delete folder in knoppix?

    On my flash drive, I finally got it to allow me to write to it!!
    But now I don't know how to delete folder on the flash drive

    On my desktop, I can delete them no problem!

    But on the flash drive, I click "Move this file to trash" on a folder, and it says that "Creating folder is not supported with protocol trash".


    I htink if I could get Knoppix to directly delete the folder with out sending it to the trash folder, that it would work just fine.
    But I don't know how to do that



    So what can I do to fix it?




    I'm using Knoppix 4 HDD install with the KDE desktop.

    Just right click on the folder and say "Delete" I've never had any problem doing that in Knoppix in the past.

    I tried that. it still says that the protocal isn't supported


    I click on this in the right click menu:




    And this is the error I get:





    Btw, this is when trying to delete off of my flash drive.
    IT will let me delete folders off my desktop with no problem!
    If I want to delete a folder, I have to move the folder and all it's contents from the flash drive, to my desktop, and then I can delete it from there no problem.
    But since my computer isn't so fast, this could take a while...

    Simple question but it has to be asked, is the pen drive locked?
    Note: I do not test code. I just write it off the top of my head. There might be bugs in it! But if any thing I gave you the overall theory of what you need to accomplish. Also there are plenty of other ways to accomplish this same thing. I just gave one example of it. Other ways might be faster and more efficient.

    No, I can delete files, but not folders...
    If I want to delete a folder, I have to move it to my destop, and delete it from there...
