    Default OpenSUSE 11.1: Trash can missing in KDE

    I've noticed that the trash can icon is missing in openSUSE 11.1 on the KDE desktop.

    It's there on mine. I'm using OpenSUSE 11.1 with KDE 4.2.1.

    Otherwise with KDE 4 you can just right click anywhere on the desktop and then Add Widgets.

    Scroll down to the trashcan widget and double click it. Now you have a trashcan on your desktop.

    Hope this helps!

    I'm using KDE3. It's not on the KDE3 desktop.

    Sorry, I've only seen KDE3 on my ps3. I started out on KDE4 with my laptop.
    but the thread right before this one solved your problem I think.

    How do you get rid of the trash... - openSUSE Forums

    Hope this helps!

    Nevermind, I didn't even realize that said Gnome!

    Okay, I googled this myself and found this page
    Add Icon for Trash on KDE Markus Feilner’s Blog

    Or here's the directions:
    Its simple: Just create a textfile on your Desktop with the following content:

    [Desktop Entry]

    Comment=Contains removed files

    EmptyIcon=trashcan_empty

    Encoding=UTF-8

    Icon=trashcan_full

    Name=Trash

    Type=Link

    URL=trash:/

    It appears to work only if the empty lines are removed as follows:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Comment=Contains removed files
    EmptyIcon=trashcan_empty
    Encoding=UTF-8
    Icon=trashcan_full
    Name=Trash
    Type=Link
    URL=trash:/
    Thanks for the info.

    Why not use the easy way (KDE3):

    Code:
    cp /opt/kde3/share/apps/systemview/trash.desktop ~/Desktop
    You're done.
