Uhm. trashcans are not a function of the window manager‽ fvwm can be
used as a wm with gnome or kde stuff instead of their default wms (the
wm is only a small but admittedly highly visible part of a desktop
environment!) if you want.  The trashcan spec is something apps
that "delete" stuff might or might not comply with, not much to do with
the wm.  If you use fvwm and never use a gui file manager or trashcan
applet, you might seldom/never _see_ a trashcan of course. You might
want to see if you've accumulated a bunch of crap in
~/.local/share/Trash though from apps silently trashing stuff when you
thought they were deleting.
