This is quicker and easier than either Nautilus Burner or Brasero, because it takes less clicking; I just drag the image onto the launcher, and it burns it and ejects it.

I want to drag a file from Nautilus to Brasero in Ubuntu 12.04 when both windows are open.
The only way to do it that I know currently is to maximize Brasero and left the Nautilus open (but not minimized) and so I can drag the file to the window that it is below, but I wonder if there is a more quick way to do it.
In my app I have a screen with grid view, where I displayed photos, in 2 columns.
I want to add possibility to reorder photos by drag end drop.
I have android 4.0, and I used android native drag and drop:
Today I was trying to drag some images from Nautilus which was maximized to a minimized Inkscape so I could work with them. My intuitive way was to drag the images to the Inkscape launcher icon and this would maximized Inkscape so I could drop the images there. Similar to how old gnome worked when dragging a content to one of the windows that showed in the upper panel.
I'm trying to drag and drop images from my web browser to a folder. In both Fedora and Ubuntu, dragging without holding a modifier key creates a link to the image. In Ubuntu I can drag the image by holding CTRL or Shift while dragging.
As the title suggests I was wondering how, if possible, to change to behaviour of the drag and drop in nautilus? I'm dual booting Ubuntu 11.10 and Windows Vista, and I have most of my files stored on the Windows partition (for easy of access between OS's).
When using Firefox I often drag URLS's either to the address bar or search boxes. When I drag URL's the Unity launcher will appear and show which programs the URL can be dragged to. However this causes my system to briefly lag while the launcher sorts itself out.
It was a shock to realise that drag and drop file manipulation isn't possible in Ubuntu 10.10 on an Acer Netbook ZG5.
Installing Ubuntu 12.04 on an Acer Netbook D270, soon realized that not only is file drag and drop still not possible, but screen brightness can no longer be adjusted from keyboard controls.
