Finder wants to make changes – Trash permissions reset

I have Lion, and for some strange reason, my Trash was now annoying me to enter my admin password to do it. Crazy. So I tried some things I searched on, no luck. Finally found a post that worked, and was fairly simple.¬†Somehow, my Trash ownership got switched to root, instead of my user. Here’s how to fix it.

  1. Open Terminal
  2. Type sudo chown $USER ~/.Trash

That’s it!
