I deleted my trash can


My trash can has disappeared. I think I accidentally deleted it while deleting something else from the desktop. How can I get it back or make a new one?

Can you find it from right clicking on an empty space in your desktop and then trying to add it back?

What desktop environment are you using? Gnome won't let me delete the trash icon so I'm not sure that's what you did. Does the directory ~/.Trash still exist?

@ Randux: No, right-clicking on an empty space on the desktop brings up a menu that has various commands but nothing involving the trash can.

@openSauce: I'm using KDE. I just looked in my home folder, and found no .trash directory. Possibly that's what I accidentally deleted.

I mean you can usually use one of the options from a right click menu in gnome or kde to add a new shortcut to the desktop. See if you can add a trashcan that way
