Ubuntu needs robust drag and drop feature(s)

Out of the box, upon installation, Ubuntu needs the ability to drag and drop files and folders with the mouse, including drag and drop
-to desktop from folders (like the download folder) and vice versa
-to a usb thumb drive to copy files to (and vice versa)
-from anywhere to the trash

  • etc…

Unity had this.
Are there any plans to implement this?


There is a very popular extension for this called Desktop Icons NG and that’s probably going to be shipped on Ubuntu some day and the current extension that Ubuntu ships is depricated and unmaintained.

Please use Ubuntu bug 1813441 or upstream issue 22 instead of this page.
