Hoping one of you brilliant folks can help me out. I’m unable to put anything in the trash can but instead get an alert that I can delete it immediately. I had this issue probably about once a month in Mojave, but I found this terminal command online that fixed my issue:
sudo rm -rf ~/.Trash sudo rm -rf /Volumes/*/.Trashes mkdir ~/.Trash sudo chown $UID ~/.Trash chmod u+rwx ~/.Trash
Unfortunately, in Catalina that command produces the error “Operation not permitted.” I heard Catalina changed terminal command somehow, but I’m not enough of a terminal genius to know how to tweak it to make it work. Help? Either with the regular issue of not being able to put things in trash OR on tweaking that terminal command so I can run it in Catalina?
