Cannot drag-select with a mouse in Nemo

Postby CaluVerde on Mon Apr 08, 2013 9:22 pm

I do not know whether this is a missing function in Nemo or that my install is busted somehow, but I cannot select any file by dragging with my mouse. Normally while holding down the left button of a mouse while dragging a selection box should appear which you can use to select a/multiple file/files. The selection box DOES appear on my desktop but is does NOT appear in Nemo. If my question is not clear I am referring to the blue selection box in the figure below:

The problem is not theme-related because I have tried a bunch.

My system is running on Linux Mint 13 Cinnamon 64 bit, with backports from Mint 14 enabled (through which I acquired Nemo). Currently installed Nemo version is 1.1.2. Feel free to ask me any system settings questions.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I re-installed Nautilus to check whether it is a Nemo problem. The problem also exists for Nautilus. However I have found out that it works both in Nautilus and Nemo under certain conditions: folder view has to be set to either Icons or Compact. The problems thus only occurs for the List folder view option.

I have exactly same problem, then on list view i can not do drag-select, but on other types of view it works fine. I use Linux Mint 14 x86, Cinnamon 1.8.8, Nemo 1.8.3.
Linux Mint 14 x64, Cinnamon 1.8.8.
