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.
