so I have this program which sets a default pic for a users profile. The user is suppose to be able to drag and drop a pic to that spot and the new pic will show up within the program. I am writing this app in linux(ubuntu) and for whatever reason when i drag and drop a pic it simply produces a gray background. Though i've tested this under windows and mac, and for some reason it works there. But my OS it wont work. Is their something im missing about drag and drop with linux?

I guess Im just wondering if there is a different mime type i should be listening for, like one for gnome or kde. Through my debugging everything works ok, just the panel where the new pic is suppose to be dropped into just turns gray after the drop. Any help?


sincerely,
