Ubuntu :: Unity Launcher Appears On Drag And Drop?

Aug 20, 2011

I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 Unity.. the inconvenience I'm facing is that the launcher appears whenever I'm using the "Drag&drop" function in any application, for example Lotus Notes or Google Chrome.

Is there a way to prevent it from doing so?

P.S.: windows manager: Compiz, decorator:Emerald

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Drag And Drop Is Slow?

Apr 11, 2010

The GUI on nautilus is painfully slow to work with. Every time I drag and drop a file I have to wait for the nautilus to slowly shade the whole file window . . . . . . . before it stops and lets me drop the file. I searched for a way to turn off this "animation", but found nothing.

I've tried pcman, but it wouldn't open my files. Thunar insists on copying files instead of just moving them.

Ubuntu Networking :: Drag And Drop Failing With VNC?

May 30, 2010

I have been using Ubuntu 10.04 (32 bit) as a headless workstation, running a VNC screen. Worked perfectly for about 3 weeks, then suddenly, I lost the Drag and Drop capability, for all applications.

For example:

Dragging and dropping to move items on the desktop does not work. The item simply pops back to the original location. Dragging and dropping to move items from one folder to another does not work. Same behavior -- the item just pops back to the original location. Dragging and dropping Bookmarks in Firefox does not work. The attempted Drag and Drop is ignored. Copy and paste still works fine. The problem does NOT occur when using an attached monitor (primary display screen :0).

I suspected that the changed behavior was caused by an update (from Ubuntu Update Manager). I confirmed this with the following:

Reinstalled Ubuntu 10.04 fresh from the live cd.
Configured minimal networking and installed VNC server.
Tested Drag and drop -- works okay
Applied pending updates (116) from Ubuntu Update Manager
Tested Drag and drop -- not working

I am using vnc4server and openssh-server installed from the repositories using Synaptic.

Ubuntu :: Drag And Drop Icons Between Views

Apr 5, 2011

I have just installed ubuntu 10.04 after using 8.10 until now. I have two sepparate screens (NOT Xinerama). The problems is that I cannot drag and drop icons on the desktop betwen the 2 screens. On ubuntu 8.10 this was working perfectly.

I do not want to use Xinerama because it is not what I want - when I change workspaces, it changes on both screens, one one screen I have to click exactly on taskbar to minimize/maximize application, so I do not whant to use Xinerama.

So do you have any ideeea how I can have back the feature from 8.10 to be able to drag and drop icons from one screen to another ? I have a sepparate home partition and old settings were loaded into this ubuntu, i erased settings from .gnome, .nautilus etc and still doesn work.

Ubuntu :: Activating A Partition - Cannot Drag And Drop Anything

May 10, 2011

I want to do is use a partition other than the one the OS is installed on for my data files. Before I installed 10.10 I set up a separate partition for this purpose and formatted it as ext 4. It shows under Places as a "131GB Filesystem". It contains a folder called "lost+found.

When I try to set up folders/directories to use for data using Ctrl+Shift+n nothing happens. The File menu does not have the option to create new directories. I cannot drag and drop anything onto it. The properties shows root as the owner. how to make the partition usable or direct me to where the instructions might be? After going through 400+ pages of a book on using the command line, I haven't found anything to deal with this.

Slackware :: Can't Drag 'n Drop Into Usb Storage?

Jan 27, 2010

Using xfce. I plug in my USB storage device and try to 'drag 'n drop' copy from home File Manager window and the USB disk window and immediately get a "Permission Denied" window.

I can even create a new USB disk folder using the file manager menu. Just can't drag 'n drop between manager windows.

Ubuntu Installation :: No Drag And Drop Across X-Screens Since Karmic

Mar 6, 2010

For the time being a "feature" included in Karmic prevents me from upgrading to it since it's release. It is impossible to drag and drop (URLs) across separate X-Screens.My setup is as follows (see also xorg. conf attached):: 2 GPUs with 3 Monitors attached (which excludes Xinerama and the like) Every Monitor has a separate X-Screen Whenever I try to drag an URL (e.g. a file form nautilus) from screen #1 to screen #2 this is what happens when crossing the border: The Cursor appears on the left side of both of the Screens. On screen #1 the URL (the files Symbol) stays attached to it, on screen #2 it is simply the blank cursor. Dropping the URL drops it onto screen #1, so the one I'm coming from.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 - Drag And Drop Not Work To Change GDM Theme?

Nov 20, 2010

So I've kind of got sick of the stock Ubuntu 10.10 GDM theme, so I really want to change it. I Googled how to, and every tutorial brought me to the "Login Screen Settings" dialog and told me to either drag and drop the .tar.gz theme into the window or press the "Install" button. However, drag and drop wouldn't work, and there was no "Install" button.

Ubuntu :: How To Make Window Drag'n'Drop In PyGTK

How would you make a window drag'n'drop? I have hidden the title bar using:
Code: self.window.set_decorated(False)
But I still want this window to be moveable, by clicking and dragging anywhere within the window. I would rather just use pyGTK, but Xlib is fine with me as well.

OpenSUSE :: VLC Integration In 11.4 - Cannot Drag And Drop Files

Mar 12, 2011

With a default 11.4 (64bit) installation with Gnome - and using the 11.4 one click installer on
VideoLAN - VLC: Free streaming and multimedia solutions for all OS! - the 11.3 integration seems to have worked better.

The first issue is that it's no longer automatically integrated into the right click context menu of movie files.

This integration happened in 11.3.

The second, which I think is user error but I really cannot get it to work is dragging and dropping files does not work.

-> Open Nautilus
-> Navigate to folder with movie files
-> Open VLC
-> Click on a file in Nautilus and try and drag it onto VLC

The VLC is hidden during the file click and drag, so a drag to the bottom panel is required to try and activate VLC - however, VLC is never activated. I have tried different positions on screen but still over the VLC entry to try and activate it, but nothing happens.

This same sequence on 11.3 correctly activates VLC so I can drag and drop.

A workaround on 11.4 is to make VLC "Always on top" via the right click menu on the VLC title bar.

Programming :: Following Drag Action And Drop - Some Tips?

Jun 4, 2011

I've got a non-urgent but itchy thing here - I'm implementing a drag-and-drop. All rolls well, but I'd like to have the component be "followed" - if there is a drag on the component, the form should be visible. I'd like to make a puzzle where the player can see the perimeter of the piece to see if it fits where (s)he'd want to drop it. Before I delve into the tons of code, I'd like to know if that (the following) can be done.

Ubuntu :: Unity - Mythtv Or How To Hide Unity Launcher

May 8, 2011

Just moved to Ubuntu 11.04 with unity and only have one problem...For most of my desktop needs I prefer to have the Unity Launcher up all the time (fullscreen apps don't cover it), and have set this option with ccsm.

However, when I watch mythtv, it is also under the launcher (and the top panel as well). How can I force mythtv to cover the launcher?
What I really need is a keyboard shortcut to hide the launcher, but the only shortcut is for "show launcher". (I guess the devs assumed everyone would want it hidden by default).

This, by the way is not my usual way for viewing mythtv. I have a projector attached to the desktop PC and it doesn't get a Unity Launcher by default (in Twinview), so no probs. However, occasionally I want to watch something on my computer screen, and that is when this issue arises.

Debian :: Drag & Drop File On Bash Script?

Jul 29, 2011

On Windows, I can drop file on batch script file, then dropped file is accepted as script parameter and script is automatically executed. Trying the same in Nautilus it seems like not possible.Is there some other way of using this approach in Debian?I hope it's clear what I'm after - I don't want to write Nautilus scripts as workaround and want to avoid: - opening terminal - cd to bash script - type script name andmeter file then executeinstead I would like already mentioned, drop filename expected as parameter to bash script, and then script to execute automatically.

SUSE / Novell :: Drag-and-drop Between Windows - Applications

Nov 16, 2010

I have opened dolphin and some other application (avidemux, dolphin, firefox,etc). in the first window (dolphin) i have a file. i drag it to another window/application and if i release the left-button of mouse, the window/application of the drag destination become active (raise). is it any way to make it to come in front/top (active) once mouse is over window while still dragging, before releasing the mouse? there is "focus" stings (focus under mouse/raise with the delay) in "windows Behavior". the focus under mouse is working fine, but is not working while dragging. it would be very handy to see where i drop the file, especially if i only see a small partition of the destination window, which is behind other windows.
my spec: suse 11.3, 64 bit, kde 4.5.3, kernel: 2.634.7
