Empty trashes from root user

How to empty the trash with administrator privileges… handy…

rm -rf /.Trashes/* ~/.Trashes/* ~/.Trash/* # /Volumes/*/.Trashes/*

One reply on “Empty trashes from root user”

I want to delete my .Trashes folder, but am new to entering code, etc.
So, at the chance of sounding like a total noob, would I just copy and paste the line of code above into Terminal and hit return?
