howto find trash bin on debian 10?
There are quite a few good results, in fact the very first hit has the answer, I know I could just tell you, or at least post a link , but you won't learn anything that way.
There are also various ways to locate, or find hidden files and directories, (or even ones that are not hidden, but you don't remember where)
Learn how to do searches, and I don't mean just online searches, I mean on your system, Debian 10 has 1000's of files, and directories, and sub directories, but there are commands you can use to search for, and 'find' or 'locate' them. To start learning to search online, copy / paste these keywords:
Code: Select all
How to find hidden files and directories on Debian 10
into your favourite search engine.
TTo learn how to search your PC, try practising some of the commands,
OR , you can just install this package: https://packages.debian.org/buster/trash-cli
Read 'man trash-cli' for instruction on using it.
Usually on most file managers, there is a clicky dicky, thingy somewhere, often it is plainly labled "empty trash", but since you do not even bother to mention what DE, or file manager, etc you are using, I can not tell you exactly where it is on the menu, the menus vary depending on the DE and file manager. Have a good night, and don't let the bed bugs, or computer bugs bite. :wink:

It might depend on the desktop environment. For example in mate: Control Center -> Look and Feel ->Mate Tweak ->Desktop icons-> Select the Desktop Icons you want enabled->Trash
