Almost six years have gone...
Posted by: on4aa 2011-12-04 09:28:34
It all started with a comment on a six year old bug report that affects most of us, see:
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=325150

Almost six years have gone...
...and still no right click with delete and rename.

This is the single most annoying missing feature that one encounters on a daily
basis when coming from Windows.
It affects GNOME, XFCE and LXDE users alike.

Leave the filemanager issue for later, just get that right click done.
I would like to help with that if possible.

The problem is that Gtk+/Gnome developers think they know better than their
users how good UI should look like, despite all of the people complaining the
opposite.

no, the problem is that the patches are out of date, and somebody has to rework
them. take your whining and false accusations elsewhere.

Six years have passed since this bug report; that means LXDE project is a
younger than this bug. Pointing that out is not whining, it's justified
criticism. Noone seems to take notice.
