Uploading custom project homepage to Srouceforge

It took me a while to find the latest instructions on how to upload my own webpage for my project in Sourcefoge. I have shamelessly copied the instructions below for posterity.

The panel encountered a problem while loading "TrashAppletFactory::TrashApplet"

Installed Ubuntu 15.04 CLI (network install), then installed Ubuntu MATE minimal installation. The issue is that every time I login I run into an application crashing.

The panel encountered a problem while loading "TrashAppletFactory::TrashApplet"

 I am guessing that this is for the Trash Can on the desktop, clicking on Delete will prevent this error message from showing up again next time. Of course you will not have the Trash on the desktop.
