No recycle bin in LMDE 3 Mate

Post by Kim_Kusanagi » Sat Jun 29, 2019 10:52 pm

Hello guys

I just installed LMDE 3 Mate in an old nettop. I installed Cinnamon first of course then MATE and I removed Cinnamon.

But now I can't find the option to add the bin to my desktop and I've already looked in Desktop Appearance.

I know it is probably something stupid I am overlooking but can someone please guide me?

I am back to Linux after several years of having been working on unrelated fields so I'm extremely rusty.

Thanks!

Nope, not there.

EDIT: I somehow installed MATE TWEAK a few minutes ago on reflex and I could solve it this way. But this is not intuitive! It should be included on a common install.

Can you add it to your panel? That's what I did in Mint MATE (should be the same in LMDE, I would think).
Mint 19.2 XFCE
kernel 4.15.0-64-generic
AMD FX-8350 Eight-Core w/16 GB RAM
Nvidia GeForce 960 w/2GB RAM (435.21)

Yeah now I can, but, as I found out, only via MATE-TWEAK.

Or else :)

MATE Tweak is a slightly modified version of Desktop Settings.

Much much enhanced I'd say.
