Thank you for your attention.

Sorry, I have made a mistake. My question was very incomplete. What I wanted to say is that the Xquartz's Drang and drop support is not working no matter program is being used. I wrote myself a program from the ground up and the drag and drop does not working on Mac (using Xquartz), but it works nice on Linux. I have debugged my source and noticed that, when running on Mac, the if below returns true,

Atom XdndEnter =  XInternAtom (display, "XdndEnter", False);
Atom XdndDrop  =  XInternAtom (display, "XdndDrop", False);
if(XInternAtom(display, "XdndAware", False))
  std::cout << "Drag Supported" << std::endl;

but not event about drag and drop is ever created since I am not getting any of them using the following snippet code: 

XEvent xEvent;
XNextEvent(display, &xEvent);

O hope someone can help me with this very annoying bug of Xquartz.
