I know that in previous versions we simplified the language by using
functional names rather than the names of the software themselves. That
might not be a terrible thing to do.

You mean a package manager? Because there's both Muon (similar to
Synaptic) and Discover (which is a more flashy software center— I won't
say "store"— sort of thing).

I think I'm tired. I misread your issue or misunderstood it. And I just
learned something about the Trash. The long story short is this:
currently pcmanfm-qt only supports the display of contents inside the
Desktop folder. Trash is not one of them and you can't really move it
there. This applies to anything that's not a folder or a file
inside the Desktop folder.

There's been a long, ongoing discussion about this that ha been updated
as recently as 23 days ago, having first been discussed almost 3 years
ago. [Recent comments][1] seem to suggest that this may be easy to solve
simply with some .desktop files. That's something that we could even
provide even if upstream does not. It does require, at minimum, an
[upstream patch][2] that has not made it into a released version yet.
I'll have to do some tests to see if that's the case and I'll report
back here.
