Having come from a Linux environment, I am accustomed to using the command line, as in MacOS's "Terminal". In particular, I know about permissions, "sudo" and such.
But I am unable to perform any operations whatsoever via the command line on the .Trash file in my home directory. (I do have admin privileges on the machine.) I can "ls -al" my home directory...
However, I can see (and copy, deleted, etc.) the contents of my .Trash file via Finder, and could apparently manipulate its permissions. But, seemingly, nothing I can do with finder makes .Trash accessible via Terminal.
Can anyone explain?
