you can use rm -rf ./directoryname do watch out it will not ask for confirmation using those settings.

Also i have seen the error and it’s probably due to the fact that some files are created with a user with more rights. You can also try chmod 777 directory or file on the file you can’t delete not sure if it works recursive though but that’s what i did when i could not edit gngeorc file (had same error).

also prefix the commando’s with sudo if you still have problems
