Thread: Add trash can to Desktop Folder View? Icon change?

  1. #1

    Default Add trash can to Desktop Folder View? Icon change?

    Does anyone know how to add a fully working (icon changes) Trashcan to the Desktop Folder View?

    I don't want the plasmoid/widget on the Desktop or on the Task Manager Panel.

    I can right click -> Create New -> Link to Location(URL), but the icon doesn't change.

    If the Desktop Folder View is a plasmoid, I guess I'm asking can a plasmoid (trash can) run inside another plasmoid (desktop view) %-) ??

    Thank you.

    I did the same thing:

    right click -> Create New -> Link to location (URL) -> trash:/

    The trashcan icon appeared automatically on my Desktop Folder View. Maybe I don't fully understand what you want to do.

    The trash can always appears full, even when empty. I guess this is it and user's will have to live with a Trashcan icon that always appears full.

    Just add the trash widget
    Can't add a widget to the Desktop Folder View. And, I don't want a lone widget hang'n on the virtual desktop.

    I have added the trashcan to the panel. I think the reason it is no longer in the Folder View by default is that the concept of the Folder View has changed. In one sense, it is a concession to those who still hanker after the traditional desktop - whereas KDE is moving away from that concept.

    I know it's not perfect but you could add the trashcan widget and move it on top of the Folder View.
