New Trash Can on Desktop [solved]

this morning i did the usual apt update/apt upgrade sequence

the screen blinked off and then back on while i was waiting for completion and, a bit later, i noticed a new Trash Can icon on my desktop. at first when i looked at the content i was a bit concerned that this can had grabbed some of my files but on closer inspection i found it only had stuff i had delete earlier during some reorganization and clean up work

kinda cute icon though

the trashcan that appears on the desktop is an alternate route to the "trash" ( deleted files ) that normally appears in the file manager

i thought it had gobbled up a bunch of my files but on checking i found it's just an alt route to the trash. so that is why i marked this 'solved'

the icon appeared yesterday right after i did the usual apt upgrade. it seems to appear as the last item on the desktop regardless of sort
