    Trash icon, Ubuntu 20.04

    Is it possible to remove it from the dock? I've used tweak to remove it from the desktop, but either using the native dock or dash to dock, there is no option to remove the icon.

    Thanks

    The link is this command
    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.desktop-icons show-trash false
    but the trash icon in the dock is a dock feature, so you need to replace desktop-icons with dash-to-dock like so
    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dash-to-dock show-trash false

    I just thought it was funny how both commands are so similar,
    of course run both and eliminate trash on the desktop completely.
