    1. Did you delete it with rm?

    2. Do you still have the file open with a program if so DO NOT CLOSE THAT PROGRAM. I can post how to recover a file from /proc if it gets delete while in use.

    3. Depending on what GUI you are using depends on if you get a "trash can"

    If you deleted the file from nautilus (the file manager), it'll probably still be in the Trash, unless you deleted it from the trash too.
