I've updated the system to Ubuntu 11.10 and set Gnome Shell as default GUI. Now I cannot move files from one desktop to another.
Let me illustrate this. I used to have Thunderbird maximized on desktop 1. When I create a new email and want to add attachments to it, I went to another desktop (desktop 2 or 3), grabbed the file from it, moved it to the left side of screen which made the screen rotate to desktop 1, and then just dropped the file into an email message.
Example no.2. The same procedure was when I wanted to move an open screen of some app from one desktop to another.
With this new Gnome Shell, desktops do not rotate left and right, but up and down. If I grab a file on one desktop and move it to the top/bottom, the screen does not rotate at all. Of course, the same is with the left/right side.
So, how can I made Gnome Shell rotate desktops when I touch one side of the screen (either top/bottom or left/right)? Has this been implemented at all?
PS. I know that I can move screens via desktop shortcuts. However, they are useless when I want to move files.
I found a way to move files. Grab it, move to upper left corner, navigate to the right desktop, touch some windows on that desktop to get focus and then drop the file into it.
