hi ahchong,
We would like to know if you selected GNOME and KDE when you were performing the installation?

1. if yes - you can switch to the KDE manager and use the Trash can  under Utilities of the KDE start menu button.

2. If no - then Gnome does not have any concept of a trash can or recycle bin.

if you need a trash can why dont you try the KDE environment. you could just upgrade your installation setup and use custom to select the KDE

let me know if this helps... Andrew :))

Linux has no concept of the recycle bin. KDE has one, as mentioned. But generally deletion is permanent, and is a feature.

You do not have to use KDE. The recycle bin of KDE is just a normal folder and you have a 'move to trash' command in the file's context menu. You could as well create a directory 'trash' on your desktop yourself and move files into it instead of deleting them. Don't forget to delete the files in that trash folder from time to time.
