hello tosal,

please save this content as /usr/share/applications/trash.desktop:

Code: Select all

[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Icon=user-trash
Name=Trash
GenericName=Trash
Comment=open trash in PCManFM
Categories=Utility
Exec=pcmanfm trash:///
StartupNotify=true
Terminal=false
MimeType=x-directory/normal;inode/directory;
than right mouse click on firefox icon -> choose 'Application Launch Bar Settings' -> add your trash to the panel (you can find it under Accessories).

unfortunately this trash workaround wont allow you to empty it with right mouse click, etc..
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
