    Rigth click on desktop → Desktop prefs → Desktop Tab → check the Wastebasket box. If already checked try to uncheck, close pref., open prefs. check the box again ?

    You may always delete things without using a trash icon by typing rm fileToRemove.txt from the terminal, for example. Make sure you're in the proper directory before typing this or it may delete something undesired. To open a terminal in which you can type that, open the file viewer, navigate to the folder in which the file to delete is found, then press F4. You'll be able to type the rm fileToRemove.txt now.
