[Bug 1101037] Re: Rubbish bin (trash) launcher icon should be unlockable


I just want to point out that the trash in unity is not only used for
trashing files, but you can also use it to close applications, to unlock
sticky apps, to unmount drives; that's why we kept it there.

Bug description:
  At the moment, the Rubbish bin icons is locked to the launcher by

  Some people don't need such access to the rubbish bin.

  This icon should have the option "Unlock from Launcher" in its
  quicklist so people who don't find it useful can make some space in
  their launcher.

  As this icon is not really an app, maybe it would be more suitable to
  be able to enable or disable them from System Settings -> Appearance,
  CCSM or gconf-editor.
