Hi Everyone:

I am new to the list and am trying to come up to speed with Gnome.  I
have been using a HP-UX machine running HP view and  a Linux machine
running CDE.  I am retiring the HP machine machine and upgrading my
Linux to Red Hat 6.1, which as I understand it, does not support CDE.

So, I am trying to use Gnome and translate the my CDE customization to
it.  I have a question.  Under CDE I have several applications on the
front panel which use drag and drop.  In other words, I can take a
data file and drag it to a front-panel application that I wrote (a
shell script) and get the application to run on the data file.  I
can't seem to get Gnome to do that.   Any ideas?
