I am using an up to date version of PCLinuxOS. When I try to put something in the trash I get an error

The trash has reached its maximum size!
Cleanup the trash manually.

When I open the trash folder it appears to be empty. I am able to delete a file but not move it to the trash. I've looked at permissions and the configure trash folder and everything seems fine. I am showing 0 bytes, 0 folders and sub folders in the trash am I missing something?

Open the Dolphin file manager logged in as the user (the one that has the problem).
Go to the /home/problemuser/.local/share/
Find and highlight (ONLY!) the Trash folder.
Press and hold SHIFT and then press DEL(ETE) key. Let go both keys.

problemuser should be replaced with the login of the user with the "Full trash" problem.

Folder has been removed. Reboot Your machine or log out and log back in. You should be able to use "Move to trash" button again.
