I know this is a possible duplicate but I do have not a convincing answer yet.
I initially did not like unity and did not switch to it till 12.04 (used gnome fallback). I have started using it only when 12.04 came out.
Here is the problem. Whenever I want to drag a file from one window to another(like nautilus to gmail in chrome or vlc playlist etc), I usually drag it to the taskbar/panel and wait for the destination window to raise/focus and then I drop the file. I have found this feature ever since I started using computers. Heck, even Windows 2000, XP could do it. Gnome could do it ever since I started using it (8.04 ubuntu).
It does not work with unity in 12.04.
I have had to install ugly xfce4-panel just for this purpose. But I am hardwired to first drag it to unity and then realize it does not work and then drag it to xfce4-panel.
Is there a possible workaround or a patch somebody has written that can I can install and not worry about it at all?
