  1. Hi Eric, I got an dependency error message when installing this (It was looking for python app-indicator?)

  2. I opened the package trashindicator_1.00-1_all.deb with Archive Manager and looked at the control file : Package trashindicator
    Depends : python (>= 2.3), python-appindicator, hicolor-icon-theme, indicator-application, xdg-utils
    So I guess it's just : sudo apt-get install python-appindicator
