I just noticed something about my desktop. I am missing my recycle bin. 
:( Does anyone know else with the original issue have this 
problem? I don't know if it is related to the issue I have or something
else (uninstalled and reinstalled all/most KDE packages, deleted /tmp,
edited startkde script as above, etc.). I looked in configuring my
desktop option (tried mountded devices, defaults, etc.).
