cant pin folders to panel

Postby soxs » Tue Jul 04, 2017 11:05 am

Hello,

I just upgrade my machines from 18.1 to 18.2 and in both, i cant pin folders to panels. In 18.1 i had pinned some (downloads,home etc) and with upgrade they vanished.

It's a regression in MATE 1.18. Hope we'll fix it soon.

Any manual changes that can be made in the meantime until this is fixed? I don't use Cinnamon partly because of this restriction. Really miss this in MATE.

caja Documents

caja dowmloads

works fine on my system for any folder.

A MATE/caja update just came out today that now allows dragging files/folders on the panel.

Yay, so nice to have this back!
