    1. Unlock the Desktop.
    2. Open the Panel Toolbox.
    3. Select "Add Widgets" (or "Add Applets").
    4. Search for the Rubbish Bin.
    5. Drag it either to the Desktop itself or, the Desktop Folder.
    6. If it's on the Desktop itself, move it and resize it as needed.
    7. Relock the Desktop.

    I have 2 machines running KDE on Tumbleweed. When adding a new user one machine creates ~/Desktop the other creates ~/Schreibtisch. How can I change (unify) that behavior?

    Hm, a new question that IMHO would better go into a new thread so more people will see it.

    I assume it depends on the language set when the user first logs in into KDE. This lets me assume that the language set for your two system may differ between the systems.

    I also assume (I am pretty sure) that when the user after first log in adepts his environment and thus his language, the then already existing directories (like Desktop, Documents, etc) are not changed anymore.

    But, as said, exposing this question to all by starting e new thread with a good title may draw the attention of the KDE gurus

    Attached all SATA drives, mounted all ATA images and finally found the culprit:

    Code:
    erlangen:~ # ll /mnt/home/karl/.config/user-dirs.dirs 
    -rw------- 1 karl users 634 Feb 18  2010 /mnt/home/karl/.config/user-dirs.dirs
    erlangen:~ # cat /mnt/home/karl/.config/user-dirs.dirs
    # This file is written by xdg-user-dirs-update
    # If you want to change or add directories, just edit the line you're
    # interested in. All local changes will be retained on the next run
    # Format is XDG_xxx_DIR="$HOME/yyy", where yyy is a shell-escaped
    # homedir-relative path, or XDG_xxx_DIR="/yyy", where /yyy is an
    # absolute path. No other format is supported.
    # 
    XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/Desktop"
    XDG_DOWNLOAD_DIR="$HOME/Downloads"

    I am not sure I understand. I guess this is a backup or old version of the home directory of karl (once in /home/karl/). When that is correct, it is NOT a system file, neither in the place it is now, nor in the place it was (is?). And thus it will have no influence on what name is chosen for ~/Desktop for a new user.

    When adding a new user one machine creates ....

    I got confused. I created a new user karl on the i7-6700K in 2016 and I thought I had done so when setting up the i3-4130 in 2014, but obviously the folder was copied from an older machine set up in 2009 and running openSUSE 11.1.
