have you tried right clicking and selecting remove or delete.. also to add, you can usually add them in your user's /home/desktop directory..

This is what I do:
Create a directory in /home called trash1
Go to the KGear/Applauncher>preferences>look and feel>desktop>paths and change the trash path to /home/trash1
The icon will disappear from the desktop automatically and you'll retain the r-click>"Move toTrash" functionality without the annoying Trash icon.
Now someone tell me how you do this for Gnome
