Unhappy What happened to Trashcan Icon in linux mint 17.1, it disappeared


An answer was posted for linuxmint 11 but,in mint 17 the advanced option does not exist in accessories menu. It also is not in apps/nautilus/desktop via gconf-editor all options are checked here but still no trashcan?
Right click does show "Move to Trash" option but I want trashcan icon on desktop for simple drag and drop. It was around in Linux mint 17 but not in 17.1?

Copy and paste this in a file and save it on the desktop with the .desktop extension:
Code:
[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Type=Application
Exec=nautilus trash://
