As a matter of fact I was given the answer for hiding, not disabling (in 
my understanding of this word[*]) the Trash. When I tried to remove a file, 
it was moved to some "invisible" Trash. It is not what I wanted to achieve. 
I wanted files I delete to be DELETED, not moved to some hidden place.

[*] - English is not my mother tongue, but I thought that "disable" and
      "hide" are not the same.
