Just tried with 1.5.4 on Windows 7 and Windows 10, unable to reproduce, works here.

works here with a fairly recent code and geeqie on linux...

in my experience, dropping images into scribus might or not work depending on what is otherwise installed on the computer...

After preferences reset (deleting prefs150.xml) it works. Possibly caused by two 1.5.X versions in the same time?

1.5.4 and and 1.5.5svn at the same time (or any two different version with the same preferences file) might be a cause.
without checking anything, i would say that it's unlikely but it's not impossible.

two scribus of the same version at the same time is for sure not the cause (i do it "all the time").

i really wonder what could be the entry in the prefs that was bugging... do you still have the old prefs150.xml file? can you upload it with (+ the current one) so that we can check what are the differences?

i had a look at the differences between the two files and i could not see anything that could explain why you could not drag and drop the images... sorry.
