You can already drag an application icon to a desktop, and you will
remain in "activity mode".

To drag and drop, I know. But often I do not have the reflex to the different applications on different desktop.

If once there is a lot of applications behavior change, it would allow me to use more often the different desktop.

Totem should already be inhibiting the screensaver when it's in full-screen.

it does not work in fedora 16

Put them on their own workspace and ignore them?

Would have when the music plays and that is closed rhythmbox, there are only miniaturized the bottom right. And we can make it reappear as needed. It does not need to clutter the desktop.

What version of GNOME Shell are you running? You should get an
auto-mount notification, not just nautilus auto-started.


In my version, when I connect a new device. A message appears at the bottom center. When I clicked, the system gives me the device in a new instance of nautilus. And not in a tab of an instance of nautilus already open.

This is hard to do for various technical reasons.

But do you think is a good idea?

Yeah, there needs to be some work towards painless sharing. How it
will be accomplished, I don't know.

Currently possible via nfs but difficult to do easily.
