I saw some posts here teaching how to lead with it problem but any of them helped me. My problem is i deleted the Trash icon from my Desktop, and after that, i noticed few days after that accessing the Trash via Nautilus in my Ubuntu 12.04 does not show any file even it have files in it, where i can see through ~/.local/share/Trash. So, how i can solve the problem of seeing my files at Trasg through Nautilus and restore the desktop icon of it? Thanks in advance.

If you have files in the Trash, you could find it in ~/.local/share/Trash/files/. Just copy the files in your desired location.

For your other issue of showing the Trash icon on Desktop. See this answer.

Hope this would be helpful.
