Default delete .Trash in USB sticks

Hi all,

I wanna delete this .Trash from my usb stick:

> rm -rf /media/xxx/.Trash-1000
rm: cannot remove `/media/xxxx/.Trash-1000/files/.Trash-abc/def (copy)/ghi':
Read-only file system
> chmod a+rw /media/xxxx
> rm -rf /media/xxx/.Trash-1000
rm: cannot remove `/media/xxxx/.Trash-1000/files/.Trash-abc/def (copy)/ghi':
Read-only file system

How to do that?

thx ...

If it's mounted read only, you can't alter the file system. A better
question is, what's causing it to be mounted read only? If you remount
it rw rather than ro, you can do whatever you want.

You need append -R (recursively) option

Did You miss the part of the OP's message that said "Read-only file
system"?

I may be wrong, but this alert also prompt because of insufficient
rights add/delete files on filesystem,

not only because read-only mounting.

You may be right but I must say I have never heard that. Attribute?

Yes, You're right, I'm wrong:

$ mount | grep sdb1
/dev/sdb1 on /mnt type vfat (ro)

$ rm -rf /mnt/test/
rm: cannot remove `/mnt/test': Read-only file system

$ sudo rm -rf /mnt/test/
rm: cannot remove `/mnt/test': Read-only file system

Remount rw.

$ mount | grep sdb1
/dev/sdb1 on /mnt type vfat (rw)

$ rm -rf /mnt/test/
rm: cannot remove `/mnt/test': Permission denied

Sorry, mea culpa.
