Cant drag and drop from file-roller to nautilus when using List View

Hi, im using file-roller and i can only use drag and drop feature from file-roller when i use Icon View. If i select List View i cant drag and drop.
Is that an expected behavior or its a bug? Is there a patch or work around? (File Roller 2.20.1 and Gnome 2.20.2)
I think its a problem with file-roller cause in my other box, running ubuntu 7.10 i have the same problem, but i can drag and drop from ark even when using List View.
Thx!

Well, sorry for the double post, but after a little research i found this is a bug, actually a not yet implemented feature. There is a patch and probably its going to be merged in next version.
Ill try to apply the patch myself, if it works could the maintainer Jan de Groot put it on the repository?

  • Drag and Drop from Files panel

    I am having trouble dragging JPG files from the Files panel
    to insert in my pages. I have a number of pages created from the
    same template and the ability to drag and drop an image from the
    Files panel doesn't work for all pages.
    Some pages let me drag the file across, other times I have to
    use the Insert command and browse to select the file. Is there an
    option that I've somehow turned off for these pages?
    Thanks.

    > Is there an option that I've somehow turned off for

    I don't think so. What happens on those pages that fail? Do
    you get an
    error? Do you just get nothing? Do you get the circle/slash
    cursor? Are
    you dropping onto non-editable turf?
    Personally, I have never found the INSERT menu option to be
    too much
    trouble....

  • Downloads dragged and dropped from Firefox download window into Outlook e-mail show as file location text.

    I have a user who normally can drag files from Firefox's Download window into an e-mail in Outlook and it creates an attachment of that file in the e-mail. However, lately, the dragged .pdf or whatever file only shows up as a text file location like:
    \\file:%Downloads%\randomfile.pdf
    It's not a link either, it's just the text.
    I've tried doing a repair of Outlook.
    I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox 19.
    I've tested dragging items from the desktop to the e-mail and it works fine.
    I can't drag and drop from the Downloads window to the desktop.
    I just wanted to add this user is using Windows XP Pro.

    I can confirm that this is an issue with the newest release of Firefox. I just upgraded my Firefox, which was previously 18.02 to 19.0 and now I'm getting the same error. It's a bug.

  • I just downloaded the new version of iTunes 10 and now it won't let me drag and drop any files from my computer.

    I just downloaded the new version of iTunes 10 and now it won't let me drag and drop any files from my computer into my iTunes. It lets me play the song from the folder in my computer and then it opens with iTunes and plays the song all the way through, but then if I try to play it again, it says the file cannot be located. So then I go to locate and go to the folder and all that and select it and nothing happens.

    Not sure whether for instance you initially had a Yahoo optimised version of Firefox, and have now overwritten it with an official Mozilla version. Although the Mozilla version should NOT add unwanted features, but the Yahoo version may well do.
    If you merely need to find the Yahoo emails page quickly just add it as a bookmark or as a bookmark on the Bookmarks toolbar and make sure that is visible.
    Clicking the star icon on the location bar whilst looking at your emails will bookmark the page.

    I do not use Yahoo myself,and am not sure what add-ons are available. You could search yourself using

    Have you successfully synced from this iTunes library/computer before?
    If so have you done anything like update iTunes on the computer since it last successfully synced?

    Does any other media like apps or photos sync to the iPod now?

    Oddly, it's possible to do the reverse, i.e. drag multiple eml files from Explorer to a TB folder.

    Hi
    I think I know what's happening as I'm having the same problem.
    Under previous iPhotos you could look at the main viewer and drag a photo or multiple photos from there to an already created album.
    Now, it only appears that you can drag an entire event from the events window to an album, even when you click on an event to open it, you can't drag individual photos from an event to an album.
    So how do we add individual photos to an album??

  • I can't drag and drop from a data CD I recorded

    I recently burned some audiobooks files (in mp3 format) as data cd's in Toast 8.0.1. When I go to reload them back onto my 20" 2 Ghz Dual Core Intel I can't drag and drop the files directly into any folder while using the columns view in a finder window. I can do it if I drag onto the music folder and let it spring open down to the level of the folder. I also can drag the mp3's into iTunes and then into the folder. This is not CD related since I used several diff brands.
    I constantly update, backup, repair permissions, and do other maintenance so everything is up to date. I have noticed this behavior just since I started to use the program called Audiobook Builder. I am (and have always used) a non-admin user account. When this started a few months ago it seemed to go away with a restart, permission repair, or a logout but now it seems permanant. I checked user permissions on my home folder - I have not added any software since adding Audiobook Builder. Any idea's? I read something about trashing a com.apple pref but didn't try that.
    I suspect Audiobook Builder since it changes the permissions and filetype to the iTunes Audiobook filetype but have not seen anyone reference this.

    While the programming of course could be done, the idea of a function that performs on original unprocessed images seems to violate the whole idea of what Lightroom was designed to be. At least that's my opinion. Of course, the idea that Adobe should do this programming for a relatively small number of people (you're one of a very few people to ask for this, that I have read) seems to be something that isn't going to happen.
    I agree, I can't see much reason for drag-and-drop to drag the unprocessed image - in other words, an image that isn't the one that you see when you drag and drop.  I can see that just filling this forum with "why the heck does it do that????????" posts.  I could be wrong, but I suspect that Adobe won't do that. 
    But if you do want to drag-and-drop the original unprocessed image, you can do it very easily now.  Right click the image, choose "show in Explorer", and then drag-and-drop from Explorer.
