I am using Ubuntu 12.04 with Unity. I just found that there is no Trash directory at: ~/.local/share/Trash like explained here.

Where is the Trash dir?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

The directory that you say is split into three folders (expunged - files - info). The files that you see when open the trash are in this files directory. – Lucio Aug 30 '12 at 22:58

The directory is created once you deleted your first file.

It seems like you've got a problem, cause I've checked and it's in ~/.local/share/Trash.
