Odd as it sounds, I seem to have trouble removing directories, when I try:
I get the error:
rm: cannot remove ‘alan’: Is a directory
If I do a ls -a -l to see the directory contents I get:
total 8 drwxrwxr-x+ 2 pi pi 4096 Aug 1 21:58 . drwxrwxr-x+ 3 pi pi 4096 Aug 1 21:58 ..
total 8 - 8 what??
Anyway, this will remove a directory (and any files in it)
rm -r directory
You need to be 100% sure that there is nothing in the directory you need before you do this.
