The future is now, GNOME Shell is here

The trash iconMany users prefer to adopt the desktop behavior like in GNOME 2 or others operating systems so they can still enable the classic desktop as seen on the previous article.

Like the disks volume icons also the trash icon can be hidden or shown again if needed by executing a simple command. To hide the trash icon you can execute the following command inside a terminal window:

gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.desktop trash-icon-visible false

To show the trash icon again you can execute:

gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.desktop trash-icon-visible true

The change is permanent and immediate so doesn’t require any restart.
