#1111 Drag and Drop does not work on Linux

next release

I have a rather small problem. If I try to add a pdf file to an existing Entry "drag and drop" does not work (neither into the main table nor into the entry field: files).

My System: Ubuntu 12.04. starting JabRef directly via the *.jar file. -> I tried different Versions of Jabref resulting in the same problem (2.8b, 2.9b).

However on my XP machine it works properly.

    This is surprising - I can use drag and drop here on Fedora/XFCE, and it also works when I try it in a Ubuntu VM.

    I'd like you to test with 2.9b2 just to make sure it's tested with the latest version.

    After trying to drag into the table, open Help -> Show Error Console, and see if there is any error output in the "Exceptions" tab. This could give us a clue to what is going on.

    It seems to be fixed in the current development version (and as the comment above suggest already in 2.9b2). If not, please report back to us and we will open this bug again.
