Bug Description

When copying files from an SD Card to multiple directories the copy progress dialog wasn't visible. Right-clicking on the icon in the launcher showed the appropriate option to show the progress dialog but to no effect.

I started copying files from the SD card in to one directory, then created a new directory, returned to the SD card, selected more files and began copying those into the newly created directory, while the original copy was still ongoing.

I used key-strokes to initiate the copy / paste (ctrl-c / v).

There were two nautilus windows open - the SD card in one, the other with the two destination directories open in tabs.

Hi - yes, I can reproduce the issue. Apologies for taking a little while
to get back to you - I was on vacation. I can reproduce this issue only
when logging in with 2D.

This bug is related to system communication hal or dbus, kernel etc. ?i don`n know. On fresh installation Kubuntu 11.10 amd64 this bug also existing. When copying files to mp3player (flash) or sd card dialog don`t show nothing. In other side flash to Kubuntu hard disk is ok. In Debian Squeeze on kernel 2.6.32 everything was ok. This bug appeared with distro 11.4 or even 10.10.

I am experiencing the same problem. The dialog appears initially but when I switch to another window it's gone and there is no way of getting it back apart from manually minimizing all windows and then seeing the little copying dialog hover above desktop.

Since there is no: a) show desktop button b) tray icon showing the progress as there were before in Gnome, this is really annoying not to be able to at least alt-tab to the dialog.

I confirm that Ctrl+alt+tab works.

Thanks Rok Lenardic for the CRTL+ALT+TAB suggestion!
