Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Get distro information by running uname -d from a terminal (command prompt). Also it would be helpful to mention whether this is Gnome, KDE, or something else. Searching for FireHydrant, it looks like it's based on Puppy Linux, which defaults to IceWM, I believe, which is why gconf is pointing you in the wrong direction (that's for Gnome). As for the /home/USERNAME/.Trash (or /root/.Trash if you're in the root account), that should be the correct path to your trash can. I'm not expirienced with IceWM nor Puppy nor FireHydrant; but I did find this thread for Puppy linux involving the trash can: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtop...2f846b7a5a178f
Looks like for IceWM, to get the Trash Can on your desktop it requires DFM (http://www.kaisersite.de/dfm/). If you had the Trash on your desktop before, you probably already have it installed, you just have to use it to regain your icon.
