Help! My trash bin is missing.

OK, this will probably sound really dumb, but I can't find where the trash bin resides. It was off the desktop, but I don't see it anymore (no, I have no idea when, I just noticed it's not there anymore) and I cannot find where it may be on my computer. I'd really like to know if I accidentally deleted it then where do things go when I right click and send to trash.

Like I said, I know it sounds like a dumb question, but I've searched with beagle and can find no reference to "trash" anywhere.

Please help.

Forgot to mention: I'm using OpenSuse 10.2 with KDE. Thanks.

Right-click on the desktop, click Create New -> Link To Location (URL). In the location box, type 'trash:/' and name it whatever you want.
