• Dash-To-Dock: Add Trash Can Possible?


    Hey Guys,

    As the subject states, trying to figure out how to add a trashcan to the default dock (dash-to-dock). Is there an easy way to achieve this?

    Thanks in advance for everyone’s time and help, it is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Asif

  • Funny idea! Must be possible, will need a trash.desktop file at the right place + a skript or this https://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/any/trash-cli/ … then you can simple add it to the dock.

    ~/.local/share/applications
    should be the place

  • @joekamprad, thanks sir! I’ll give this a shot soon, was hoping there was just another extension or something to get this working a bit more easily.

    I got the idea from my work MacBook. OSX has a similar feature in its dock:
    alt text

    Wanted to have the ability to empty my trash can contents easily.

    Thanks,
    Asif

  • Hi!
    When you open the trash what options appear to you when right clicking the “trash” at dash to dock? (i guess there is a option to add to dash to dock)
    If not, you’ll need to create a .desktop file like @joekamprad said…
