Description naughtypine@openmailbox.org 2015-11-22 23:15:33 UTC
Unable to drag and drop files/folders from Dolphin into Google Drive in Chrome or Firefox browsers. 

Found same/similar bug here:

This worked before when I used fully updated openSUSE 13.1 (app versions unknown). I am now using openSUSE Leap 42.1 (clean install, also fully updated).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mark one or multiple files/folders in Dolphin file manager;
2. Drag selected items into open Firefox or Chrome window with Google Drive loaded; and
3. Drop selection.

Actual Results:  
Nothing happens.

Expected Results:  
Google Drive reacts to selection hovering over open browser window by turning blue/displaying instructions to drop files to upload.

As reported in the aforementioned Red Hat Bugzilla thread, this works as expected when using Konqueror as a file manager.

I can reproduce this also, gets really annoying. Not sure if this is a dolphin or a browser bug though...
Comment 2 Carlos 2016-01-28 13:50:41 UTC
I can reproduce this always. I can not drag anything from dolphin to chromium (google drive, gmail attachments...)

See this: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=543940
I tested this patch here and it works. However, it seems it wasn't submitted to Qt 5.
Comment 5 naughtypine@openmailbox.org 2016-02-21 14:59:58 UTC
Still present in Dolphin 15.12.1.
Comment 6 Roman Gilg 2016-04-03 14:43:14 UTC
This bug is Qt related.
I'm now on Qt5.6. The bug is still present. Upstream the bug is discussed here with a proposed solution: https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-45812

A duplicate is this bug:
