    I'm presuming you're talking about KDE 4...Yeah...there's no trashcan on the desktop by default. I noticed that in RC1, but thought nothing of it at the time...It looks like it slipped the developers' minds, but I could be wrong.

    It's easy enough to add as a widget.
    I'm confused...No, wait...Maybe I'm not...

    The trash icon was on my desktop until yesterday, it just disappeared today. Yes it is KDE 4 that comes with the update

    I thought the same Wrath5000, it's just that he said he updated, so I assumed /home was still in place and kde4 would dump folder view with the desktop in it wouldn't it?

    But, if it is kde4
    Yes, right click, unlock widgets then add widget, ..

    Actually of course what you assume to be the desktop is not. Go to dolphin and navigate to the desktop to see what is actually there,
    As said you can add widget trash
    or even folder view and set the folder to desktop as location

    right clicking on the desktop, a menu with different options show up but the add widget is not there. also the K symbol on the top right corner of the desktop is not there.
    As I said before, every thing was in its place after the update, but not today

    Does right click show Unlock Widgets or Lock Widgets.

    You need to have them Unlocked, then you should get the option to add widgets.

    Hi,
    I had the same initially. I noticed that the trash-icon's default name has been changed. If you edit the trash.desktop file in /home/<user>/Desktop folder with any text editor you would notice options like "EmptyIcon". Change its value to "user-trash". And an Icon will appear on the desktop.

    Right clicking does not show any of the two options you mentioned
