Description Pacho Ramos 2009-11-23 19:30:23 UTC
This is a regression from 2.24

When I drag and drop a file from my desktop to, for example, my main home directory, file is copied instead of moved, like was done with 2.24 and previous versions.

This only occurs when file is in desktop, not when it's on a different folder

Thanks a lot

I experienced this myself a while ago but cannot reproduce this in the current version of nautilus (2.30). Could you try it as well?
Comment 2 Pacho Ramos 2010-07-22 20:23:03 UTC
Yes, it's still valid with 2.30.1 :-(
