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.

I'm running Slackware 13.37 64bit using Xfce. I installed cairo-dock, and for the most part I have it setup as I wish. There are a couple things I can't figure out.
First is the trash bin. I would like to put it on the dock so I can remove it from the desktop. I enabled it in cairo-dock configuration and it shows up on the dock, but it does nothing. How does one configure this applet?
Second, if possible, I would like to have the xfce popup menu on the dock so I can get rid of the xfce panel. Is this possible?
To configure the dustbin, right-click on it and select 'Configure this applet'. This takes you to the configure screen.
What the issue is the "Dust Bin" doesn't work. I drag a file to it and nothing happens, the file stays where it was and the "Dust Bin" stays empty.
I have gone through the right-click>>Configure this applet and I don't see where this could be corrected. Is there a config file that can be edited to make it work?
I just checked and it works perfectly for me. I'm using a custom built version 2.4.0-2 on Debian Squeeze. I'm not 100% sure, but it might have to do with integration with XFCE4. Do you have an XFCE integration option in the System configuration screen? If not, you may need to install the XFCE integration plugin. This may also help with integrating XFCE's menu into the dock.
The config files are in ~/.config/cairo-dock/extras/dustbin, but the files there are mainly for the icons.
Just installed Cairo-Dock 2.4 on Debian Wheezy with XFCE4. At first, the dustbin showed N/A and did not show any trash.
After installing the XFCE integration plugin, it worked perfectly.
Could be you're missing some dependency. Because you must manually satisfy all dependencies in Slackware, I would suggest to re-check your cairo-dock installation and ensure you did not miss any of the dependency packages.
Launched the dock and I am getting the same N/A text on the dustbin although XFCE integration is enabled. This means the dustbin icon will not function. Are you getting the same N/A text on the dustbin icon?
