Drag & drop support, please.

Asked by geaplanet on 2011-11-01

When you drag & drop multiple files over a script or over a .desktop, pcmanfm want to "move" the files instead of runs the script or .desktop with files like parameters. It is useful for mass treatment of files. All filemanagers I know when you drag&drop a lot of files over a .desktop or shell script take all files and pass them like parameters to continue executing the script.

You can for a script, but the icon that invokes the script must be a launcher. I've verified that this works for dragging one data file, I suspect that if you drag more than one they are passes as multiple arguments on the same line. This would be expected behaviour as far as I'm aware.

I know it's an stupid example, it is only for showing the problem.

Can you help with this problem?
