I was looking for a solution to the "Malformed URL trash:/" error message that appears when clicking the Trash icon issue but the only thread I can find is here: http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,80736.0.html
As you can see that thread was started in KDE 4.5.2 and continues to be an issue (at least for me) in 4.8.3.
On other sites I found that the old (KDE 3) solution was to delete the trash folder and create a new one.
Then people started deleting the .dcop folder.
Then KDE 4 replaced dcop with dcup and that didn't work anymore.
Some people have replaced the mime folder with a copy from a know good profile.
None of that has worked for me.
Has anyone here come up with a solution yet?
