This is probably for the UX team, but just thought I would mention it.
Debian 9.7 Stretch.
Desktop icon for Wastebasket.
If you right click, you get the option to Empty Rubbish bin.
If however you go to desktop properties,
Menu - > Preferences -> Desktop Preferences -> Desktop Icons tab
From here you can tick Show 'Trash Can' on Desktop
In essence the same icon / tool has three different names.
Should there perhaps be a consistent name for this,? firstly users
coming from Windows / Mac may expect this.
I understand that in different countries this has a different name, so
perhaps a solution to this is:
Short term : fix the inconsistency.
Longer term : Perhaps find a way for the user to change the name, but
then it also changes the name in the properties box, and right click menu.
This may save people providing support a lot of work trying to help a
user, who is expecting to see 'Empty Wastebasket' it may help the
documentation team(s) too.
I have not come across this when providing support I just anticipate
issues caused by this.
Just a thought
Hope it helps
