Attempts to look in trash yield malformed URL

Mint 12 KDE. Click on Trash can applet on desktop, get a popup titled "Error -- KIOExec" with this text: "Malformed URL trash:/". Mom always told me not to dig in the trash, but something tells me this isn't why.

Never mind. I deleted the trash db file (actually ALL files) in the ~/.local/share/Trash folder, and that seemed to solve the problem.

This was likely caused by a corrupt trash file. This happens on occasion for unknown reasons, but could be due to manual deletion, alteration or multiple applications modifying the Trash at the same time.

The method you followed was the correct one to fix the issue.

Thanks, bcooksley. I suspected as much, especially since I had just used another file manager tool (shan't happen again).
