lol the irony, in most linux distro's you can make a launcher by right clicking on your desktop, i've never used FireHydrant, but if you can, make a launcher to folder
Code:
/home/username/.Trash

I haven't used FireHydrant either, but I'm sure it has some method of creating launchers. You can point the launcher to the .Trash directory in your home directory.

Example: If your username is bob, you would point your launcher to /home/bob/.Trash

Note that a period (.) in front of a file or directory makes it hidden. To see hidden objects in bash, you'd need to use the ls -a command.

FYI: In Windows, a launcher is analogous to a shortcut. It's just a pointer that redirects to another file or directory.

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

Hope this helps,
-Josh

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.
