Description Strangiato 2017-03-03 14:42:37 UTC
I'm running Gnome 3.24 beta2 on Arch on my laptop and I noticed drag and drop files/folders does not work when I use my touchscreen. It works when I use my touchpad.
Comment 1 Strangiato 2017-09-20 03:14:28 UTC
3.26 has the same bug. I cant DnD to copy/move files/folders using touch screen.
Comment 2 Strangiato 2018-03-16 20:05:51 UTC
Same thing in nautilus 3.28, Arch.
Comment 3 António Fernandes 2018-09-09 17:45:13 UTC
Is this a bug or a missing feature? How did/would DnD on touchscreen work?
Comment 4 Strangiato 2018-09-09 17:56:53 UTC
Well, I can copy/move files/folders by DnD with a touch screen under X11.
I think that's the expected behavior.
Comment 5 Strangiato 2019-03-10 23:10:18 UTC
it's still impossible to drag and drop files/folders using a touch screen with nautilus 3.32 rc2.
Comment 6 Strangiato 2019-09-14 02:31:51 UTC
Same thing with nautilus 3.34 on Arch Linux.
