Empty trash with normal permissions does not work

I have something in Trash that won’t delete, I need to become root to delete it.

Use terminal and sudo rm... or install kio-admin or install kf6-servicemenus-rootactions from AUR or install other file manager which allow run as root… and many more other possibilities, choose what you want.

rm -rf ~/.local/share/Trash/

in worst case
sudo rm -rf ~/.local/share/Trash/
pkexec dolphin and going to trash will probably also work
