What Terminal command did you use? You likely didn't tell it to delete recursively. The command you want is as follows:
Code:
rm -rf ~/.Trash/*
The -r argument will remove files recursively (delete a file within a folder, within a folder...) and the -f argument will remove the files without prompting (handy if you have a lot of files to delete and you don't need to ensure that only certain ones get deleted).
