GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 321211
Implement XDS (Direct Save Protocol) at GTK+ level
Last modified: 2018-04-15 00:22:11 UTC
Some discussion have happened on the ML , and code was written, both for GIMP
 and Nautilus . Xfce also has code, though it is written in python.
It is very important to have this implemented, since it heavily simplifies drag
operations between Nautilus and other applications (file-roller, panel, gedit, ...).
The most challenging task is to develop an API that is generic enough for the
applications. It would be great if we had a callback-based API.
 bug 171655
Needs a concrete api proposal
Needs a concrete api proposal, rather than just references to gimp code.
See bug #138260; this has been proposed for GtkFileChooser a few times before.
I don't think an XDS icon belongs in the file chooser, but a working patch could
convince me to do it...
I don't think the proposal is to add XDS to the file chooser; that would in fact
not make sense. The proposal is to have an api in GTK+ which makes it easy to e.g.
turn the tab labels of gedit documents into xds drag sources

Btw, the GIMP code is now at http://svn.gnome.org/viewvc/gimp/trunk/app/widgets/gimpdnd-xds.c .

FYI, the GIMP code is now at https://git.gnome.org/browse/gimp/tree/app/widgets/gimpdnd-xds.c .
We're moving to gitlab! As part of this move, we are moving bugs to NEEDINFO if they haven't seen activity in more than a year. If this issue is still important to you and still relevant with GTK+ 3.22 or master, please reopen it and we will migrate it to gitlab.
As announced a while ago, we are migrating to gitlab, and bugs that haven't seen activity in the last year or so will be not be migrated, but closed out in bugzilla.
If this bug is still relevant to you, you can open a new issue describing the symptoms and how to reproduce it with gtk 3.22.x or master in gitlab:
