How can I add a trash can [Solved]
« on: May 31, 2017, 06:30:58 am »
Been looking and haven't see anything about this.
I would like to add a trash can to my desktop or pannel.  and haven't found any way to do that in Peppermint.
I might just be missing something simple.  But help would be appreciated.

menu > System Tools > dconf Editor

In the left hand panel, navigate to

org > nemo > desktop

and put a tick in the "trash-icon-visible" tickbox .. you should now have a trash icon on the desktop.
(personally I just use trash from within the left panel of the file manager .. but each to their own ;) )
