thunar 1.6.15 - no right click drag context menu

Is there anyway to get a context menu with right clicking and dragging in Thunar?

Thanks! I am confused though because the bugzilla post says it works in 1.6 and I have 1.6 and it does not work. hmm

Yes, it is confusing. I'm using 1.8 and it doesn't work. I can't remember whether it worked in 1.6x. Perhaps comment in the bug report for confirmation?

Which distro and what exact version of thunar do you have?

thunar -V

I just tested in my Xubuntu 18.04 VM and it works (1.6.15 is still gtk2-based). What appearance theme are you using? Do you have anything in ~/.gtkrc-2.0 that would limit gtk-menu-popup-delay? (if set to 0, the right-click menu will popup immediately and not give the system the opportunity to initiate the drag event).

I am using the Adwaita appearance theme and there is no ~/.gtkrc-2.0 folder. This is a pretty fresh install, I do not recall changing any popup-delay setting.

It looks like the adwaita theme is disabling the popup delay. Not sure exactly how its doing this - maybe its hard-wired. For me, adding:

gtk-menu-popup-delay = 225

...in ~/.gtkrc-2.0 and logging out and back in again makes it work again with that theme.

That did not work. I even tried rebooting but no luck.

$ cat ~/.gtkrc-2.0 
gtk-menu-popup-delay = 225

That is strange.

Can you try the greybird theme and see if that one works (you may need to log out and back in again). The other thing to try is to increase the 225 value.
