I have Ubuntu 12.04 and also downloaded Gnome desktop.
Is recovering from the recycle bin/rubbish bin/trash can available with Gnome or not?
I get conflicting answers about this from Forum search and “Answers”
Some say you can find it in “local” but I can find no local file where it should be.
One post says navigate to ~/.local/share/Trash/ but I cannot find “local”.
The only way I can find anything like this is Places>Computer>File System>usr>local>share but “share” contains no trash folder.
Is “~” the same as user name?
I am the only user on this pc, is that why I can't find it?
Others say you have to download Gnome Tweaks. What I am looking for is the same in Gnome as there is in Unity, a trash can that you can open and restore trashed items from, but I don't seem to have it in Gnome, however if it is there somewhere I would rather find it than download Gnome Tweaks.
Also what is the correct term? Recycle bin, rubbish bin or trashcan? On my Ubuntu 12.04 when deleting it is referred to as “the rubbish bin” but no-one else seems to call it that, is it because I opted for English Language UK rather than US?
