Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] Copy/paste into Nautilus

Can't you just hit alt-tab while holding your mouse button on the drag
and drop it on your preferred window?

You can. I was just having a hard time getting the proper window to open, in netbook remix. Even if I'm not using netbook remix, it's sometimes kind of a pain in the butt to get the right window to pop up.

Alternatively, you can click and
drag the mouse and hold it over the netbook remix entry on the taskbar
till that window is on top and then drop the songs.

The window wasn't popping up when I was doing it. This was using the Ubuntu 10.10's "Unity" desktop.


Just a thought, I do this with album covers from chrome to rhythmbox.

Hi.  So, we are able to select songs from the rhythmbox interface and drag

But I would like the ability to select songs from the rhythmbox interface
and click "copy" and then go to the nautilus interface and click "paste".

I've always thought this would be useful, because I like to keep rhythmbox
maximized, but I just recently used the "Ubuntu Netbook Remix" where the
windows are always maximized.  There's no way to drag from one window to
another because there's no way to make both windows visible.  In this
context, having copy/paste functionality is the only way to copy files
from Rhythmbox.  The only way I could copy those files was to view the
Properties and find the file paths of the individual files.

Should I open a bug about this?

Copy should probably populate the clipboard/XSelection with a list of
URIs for the files selected. Right now, all that is handled internally.
