Doesn't /have/ to be, but you can't look at files until you have access

files, there's no problem.  For root's files or for those of other 
users, you'll get this message.  I believe that Trash belongs to root.  
So yes, you need to use sudo (or change to superuser by typing *su* and 
inserting the root password, which I personally prefer) in order to see
