Ok, under Gnome the trash can is under;

Quote
.local/share/Trash/files

Assuming it's not in here, if you were using a network drive/USB key, you can look for a .trash hidden file, but it it's really been deleted, it's gone!
(the 'undelete' functionality you see is provided by the GUI/desktop, it's not a feature of underlying Linux or the Linux filesystem)

Thanks for your reply
I cant find a .trash hidden file........am i searching right? On my home screen I have a search box in the right hand corner, is this where I should be searching from?
If yes when I do the search it gives me a drop down of options of where to search ie file system, desktop, user. Which should I use?
When I did a search for .local/share/Trash/files it came up with a warning saying, The search results may be invalid.  There were errors while performing this search. and & show more details.
What am I doing wrong?

To access the Trash in Linpus Lite

1) On the 4-Panel Home Screen, open My Files or My Documents under Files.

2a) Press Ctrl+T to display the file tree in the side pane and click Trash

Or

2b) In the address bar where it starts My Disk:/// replace it with trash:///

3) The trash folder should now be displayed.
