For those of you using lion, just type in rm -rf ~/.Trash/* in the terminal, that should empty your bin.

Incredible!
I've been trying to empty the trash for days now without avail, even the usual restart then empty did not work on this one, and none of the other methods work.

I ran this script once and splendor! the trash is empty.

this is a very good tool.

When I run the program, I get the following error message:

rm: /Users/rich/.Trash*: No such file or directory.

How to I move the .Trash directory to user "Rich"? That should fix the error...right?
