Bug Description

open deja-dup for the first time.
Navigate to folders and highlight "Rubbish bin"
Realise you made a mistake and want to re-add the Rubbish Bin to the list of exclusions.
Press the "+" icon then get lost in nautilus, unable to find "Rubbish bin".

I would expect it to be possible to re-add the rubbish bin to exclusions.

Can you add the location `trash:///`?

The trash can (US)/rubbish bin (UK) is at ~/.local/share/Trash and doesn't exist if you've never put anything into.

Adding it back through Déjà Dup's GUI requires right-clicking in the dialog box to select Show Hidden Files and get into .local, otherwise from the command line you can run

  $ gsettings get org.gnome.DejaDup exclude-list

to print your current excludes and then

  $ gsettings set org.gnome.DejaDup exclude-list "[<your current excludes>, '\$TRASH']"

So not a bug, although not obvious when you don't know where the trash is.
