Subject description: The said files are leftovers of a Wine installation that never got to be used.
 

There're some files that refuse to be deleted within the WINE folder. Have tried everything I imagined would work but they remain fixed in their spot. The scenario is as follows:

see attached screenshot...

Any ideas as to what to do next? Thanks!

PS. Never got to use WINE anyway.
PSS. The same issue arrived after trying to delete Firefox, today.

Very Happy Hello,
Let me guess....input/output error???

Reboot pfix=ram...
Open a terminal and type in
e2fsck /dev/xxx
where xxx is your puppy partition...
IE e2fsck /dev/sda1
When it ask`s "Fix y or n" (possibly several times...deleted inodes)
Choose yes...
Then reboot, and see if they are gone..

Thanks puppyluvr for responding!

I'm sorry that I don't remember the command used to do it but I finally changed the SUID bit within the Properties window & the deleted the files/folders involved.

Probably due to lack of sleep-time I'm having like a short term memory emptiness, think is related to a lower back pain that has endured for almost 2 weeks now.
