Xfce : Trash icon disappeared


Hello everyone.

I have a hell like annoying problem here. I installed Arch with Xfce recently. I configured Xfce well. But now in every startup trash icon disappear from desktop. Super annoying. And the funny thing is it worked nice before I remove tumbler. So I reinstalled it with all dependencies. But no luck. Anyone can help me? Is it a bug of Xfdesktop or something? If you want any information please ask me.

Thanks in advance.

I can't tell if you're saying that the icon dissappeared and you don't know how to get it back, or if it keeps dissappearing repeatedly despite you putting it back. But in case it's just a one time dissappearance and you haven't found out how to restore it:
Code:
In Xfce: Right click on a unused area of the desktop, choose the "Desktop Settings" menu item,
choose the "Icons" tab, then make sure there is an X next to the "Trash" choice in the "Default Icons" area.
If it keeps repeatedly dissappearing despite restoring it as above, then I don't have any idea what may be going on. Sorry.

Someone told me "don't use bumps in this forum". So, this is not a bump.

I see you've asked this question at the Arch forum and found a fellow sufferer. On the other hand, no-one has reported the problem at the Xfce forum. That suggests to me that there's a problem specifically with the Arch package. I'm not too familiar with Arch, but I see it's using 4.10. You might have to go back to a slightly older version.

Taste's a funny thing. The first thing I do when setting up any desktop is remove all the icons!

Well.. I use latest stable version of Xfce. So, I decided to change beta version. Not downgrading but upgrading.
