    The waste bin has disappeared off desktop?

    The waste bin has disappeared off the vista desktop?

    Any ideas how to get it back?

    Thanks

    Insufficient clues:
    Why are you asking about vista here? Is the vista in some fashion related to some Linux set up somewhere?

    Off the vista desktop?

    Don't quite see the openSUSE relation yet, but please see this Microsoft Vista / hide / show icons page.

    My mistake I meant Suse 11.1 as detailed below.
    It came with Vista - just one of those moments.

    Sorry

    I seem to remember this happening to me once a few years ago. Can't remember what the solution was but I worked around it by creating a symbolic link to /dev/null on my desktop.

    Code:
    cd ~/Desktop
    ln -s /dev/null ./
    Then I could just move files into that folder when needed. Of course this doesn't provide the restore functionality that the normal trash does.

    I thought - change back to KDE4 see the basket and hopefully changing back again to KDE3.5 would give me the trash basket again. BUT it did not boot up in KDE4 it just went to this TWM screen. I have started a new thread on this.

    Thanks

    Well... in KDE4 solution is pretty simple. Try if it works for you on KDE3.5: Righ-click your desktop and open tab "add mini program". There you simply select the waste bin to add to the desktop.

    Let me know if I could help.

    Right Click Desktop
    -> Create New
    -> Link to Application
    -> URL = trash:/
    -> Application Name = Wastebin
    -> OK

    seems to produce another waste bin here.
