External Drag & Drop does not work on Linux


#1

I’ve created simple program to reproduce here: https://github.com/FigBug/juce_bugs/tree/master/ExternalDrag

Simple app, lists files in your documents directory on left, you can drag to right and it gives path or drag to external app. Works on Windows / Mac, not on Ubuntu 16.04


#2

Is this not working for anybody else?


#3

I get the Documents folder listed on the left half, and I can also drag & drop files from the Desktop / file manager to the right half with their paths being shown. So it looks good here on Arch Linux with XFCE.


#4

Just wondering if anybody can get this to work on Ubuntu Linux?


#5

It’s working on Ubuntu (16.04) but not as expected. When dragging you have to leave the app window and then enter it again to get it working.


#6

I’m still struggling with this. Is there a way to do an internal drag and drop and if it goes to an external window then it turns to a external file drag and drop?
