While it might look complicated from our perspective as users,
the discussions following up to the specification this is based
on shows, that the situation is not as easy as one would think
without looking at all the cases that need to be supported.

And as Ralf wrote, since there are tools that actually implement
the specification, we usally don't need to find these folders
ourselves. But since there is a specification and not just some
random set of locations we can if we do.

I apologize for contradicting Ralf and you. Since the location of the trash folders is kept secret by KDE (no mention in the manual or anywhere else), we actually *have* to find them ourselves. My method is keeping the name of a file to be deleted and then performing 'find ~ -name <deleted_file>'. If somebody knows an easier or more elegant way to find trash folders, I would be grateful if he let me know it.

Thanks in advance,
Wolfgang
