Bug Description

Start a long-running copy operation. Show the desktop. Bring control back to the file manager windows. The copy dialog does not display. On the unity bar, right-click the file manager icon and click "Show Copy Dialog". The operation yields no result. The copy dialog does not show. I have been unsuccessful at finding a workaround.

Is this still a duplicate if it is present on a different major version of Ubuntu? This report is for 12.04. Bug #887821 is for 11.10. That is why I reported it.

I have the same issue, However, after clicking the "show copy dialog", I am able to use Alt + Tab to make the copy dialog reappear.

bug affects me as well (Ubuntu 12.04.1 after a fresh install w. updates).

have any fixes or workarounds been found, since mstng_67 posted this bug in April 2012 ?

Im a noob and the bug is REALLY annoying as I am very dependent on copy function, can I maybe help in any way?
