Arch Linux 64bit (rolling release distro)
GNU Image Manipulation Program version 2.8.2
ROX-Filer 2.11 | Compiled with GTK version 2.24.6 | Running with GTK version 2.24.13
I use the context menu in ROX-filer to open foo.jpg in GIMP, which invokes `gimp foo.jpg`. If I then use "File/Export to", the suggested file name is "foo.jpg" . (Correct behavior).
If I instead drag and drop "foo.jpg" from Rox-Filer into the empty GIMP main window to open it and try to use "File/Export to", the suggested file name is "Unknown.png". (Incorrect behavior).
In Thunar (another file browser) the behavior is correct.
This indicates that Rox-Filer and Thunar use a different method when dragging and dropping. It is not clear whether it is the fault of GIMP or of Rox-Filer's method, that Rox-Filer's method is inconsistent with command-line opening of the file, which is why I report this issue on both GIMP and ROX trackers.
