Drag and Drop from Guest to Host

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



I am using spice on my Linux Mint machine, and would like to ask a question about how drag and drop is supposed to work.

Basically, I use qemu with spice agent installed on the guest.  Dynamic resolution changing works.  Copy and paste between the guest and the host works, both ways.  File transfer through drag and drop works from host to guest, though not from guest to host.

Ubuntu (https://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/xenial/man1/spice-vdagent.1.html), Debian (https://manpages.debian.org/testing/spice-vdagent/spice-vdagent.1.en.html), and Arch Linux (https://man.archlinux.org/man/spice-vdagent.1.en#:~:text=The%20spice%20guest%20agent%20for%20Linux%20consists%20of,desktop%20environments%20which%20honor%20%2Fetc%2Fxdg%2Fautostart%2C%20and%20under%20gdm.) all say that spice agent supports 'transferring files from the client to the agent', not mentioning the other way around.

What I wanted to know was, if this one directional drag and drop works by design, or there is something I missed or misconfigured as it should work both ways, i.e., from host to guest as well as from guest to host.  Thank you.

Best Regards,
