your trash folder would be the directory /home/fminmexico/.Trash/
if you can make a launcher to that exact directory, you should have it back, the "." is not a mistake, your trash folder is hidden and the "." at the start make it so

Don't know about other DEs, but in KDE you can right-click on the desktop and choose Create New -> Link to Location and then enter


for the URL. Just tried it on mine and it created one and even gave it the correct icon.

yea in Gnome you can right click on the desktop and click create launcher, which then asks you to fill in a few detail such as the type of launcher, name, location and any extra comments you wish to add
