Copy to & Move to missing from menu.


I recently clean upgraded my Computer from Linux Mint Cinnamon 17.3 to Linux Mint Cinnamon 18.0 and I have noticed that when I right click on an icon, dropping down the menu, I notice that the Copy to & Move to option is no longer there, whereas on the previous OS (17.3) the option was there. I have looked in the top menu File, Edit etc in Nemo and I cannot find the facility in Mint 18. Any ideas?
This may be related but the option to send files/folders to the waste bin is not working, delete option is working.
Does anyone know how to fix this?

gael.

I assume you are talking about the desktop or the File Manager (nemo)?

I tried a Mint upgrade from 17.3 to 18.0 in a VM (some time ago) - just to test that it would work.
The select + right-click and copy/paste function does work.
If you have selected a file or directory then the Top menu also has copy/paste available.

What happens if you create a file on your desktop & then delete it - does it silently disappear or display a warning message?
My VM upgrade has a working wastebin.

I suspect a non-working gvfsd{-fuse} or a corrupted $HOME/.config/ and/or a $HOME/.gconf/ entry.

Easy test:
Create a new user on the systemd, logout. Login as new user.
Test. Observe. Report.

Yes, It's nemo and the wee box and the select + right click did work.

Thanks for helping me out, much appreciated.
