    I found the icons, there are in /usr/share/dist/desktop-files ... But
    it's strange to do not permit move/delete on those files for the user

    Go to the directory where they live and as root delete them.

    Have a look here for more info :
    https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=438071

    Hopefully fixed with an update soon... until then you can either delete
    or reassign the icon folder.

    For the Trash & Home folder:
    To remove the home folder, open the 'More Applications menu. Under the
    'System' category, choose GNOME configuration editor.

    Then open Apps menu, then Nautilus. Highlight 'desktop' and then
    uncheck home_icon_ visible.


    Now for the other two:

    In Console log in as Su, then type
    "rm SuSE.desktop"

    after that type
    "rm GnomeOnlineHelp.desktop"
