How to Add the Trash Can to Your Kubuntu Desktop

Do you use Kubuntu (or have KDE installed in Ubuntu) and want to add a Trash can to your KDE Desktop? If so, then follow these steps:

Create a text file on your Desktop by right-clicking on it and pointing to Create New > Text File. Open this file and paste the following in the file:

[Desktop Entry]
Comment=Contains removed files
EmptyIcon=trashcan_empty
Encoding=UTF-8
Icon=trashcan_full
Name=Trash
Type=Link
URL=trash:/

Save the file and close it.

You’re done!
