I used to be able to invoke QS and start typing "empty" and I would get the action to empty the trash. Now I get the empty trash scpt in the right pane and no way to run it (or I've forgotten how). Can someone tell me how I can get the empty trash action working again?

That’s from the Extra Scripts plug-in, so make sure you have that.

You might also want to go to Preferences → General → Actions and confirm that the appropriate “Run” action is enabled and near the top of the list so it will be the default for scripts.

I don’t think the script works any more on Big Sur. Could be because it’s now named ‘bin’ as opposed to ‘trash’. 

When I tried to amend the (very simple) script, it wouldn’t have it and as I know nothing, I gave up :-)

Anyone with the right knowledge here... be great to have a replacement script please. I couldn’t even see how to create an automator action / workflow to do I it.

I never use it, but just tried it under Big Sur with English (US) and it works, so it’s probably just a localization thing.

I don’t know if it’s possible to make a location-aware version of an AppleScript, but if anyone gets it working for your region specifically, you can drop the working version in ~/Library/Scripts. Quicksilver should be scanning that folder by default.
