KDE&Fedora16: Malformed URL trash:/

I am using KDE in Fedora 16, and have added the trashcan widget in the lower panel (see first figure attached). However It does not work when I click on it, giving the error message "Malformed URL trash:/" (see second figure attached).

I have seen in google many other older posts reporting the same error (those ones for example: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/archiv...p/t-88686.html, http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/sus...rmed-urls.html), and a "final" solution was simply "rm -rf .dcop* .local*" in home folder. However, I don't have ".dcomp*" in my home folder:
[vinicius@localhost ~]$ ls .dcomp*
ls: cannot access .dcomp*: No such file or directory
[vinicius@localhost ~]$
So, well, is there any other way? Thank you all.

Re: KDE&Fedora16: Malformed URL trash:/

Thank you David for your reply. Your suggestion has worked, but I find out what was wrong after all. I am not using the default file manager for KDE (Dolphin), I am using instead Nautilus. When I use Dolphin the trash bin works properly (which has happened when I followed the suggestion in your link, which restaured many default options), but as soon as I switch back to Nautilus the problem returns. Well, I just gave up of the trash bin, since I hate Dolphin and like Nautilus very much.

Thank you again!
