Ah I see the problem now. I'm using GNU Dr.Geo 1.1.0 from the Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit repository. And the downloadable DrGeo 11.03.01 from this site gives me this error "This Squeak version does not support Linux-x86_64". Is there an easy solution?
I can get the new Dr.Geo (11.03.01) to start in Wine, but dragging a PNG or BMP image from the GNOME file manager does not seem to work. Does it have to be done within Wine?
I see from another post that the "Renaming the directory Linux-i686 to Linux-x86_64 solve it!" , and that did work for my 64 bit install.
Now I can have these options when dropping an image:
1. Read Graphics into ImageImports - does not show up.
2. Open Graphic in a Window - allows me to drop in the graphic, but it does not scale/zoom with the geometry.
3. Use as background image - brings graphic outside of DrGeo window.
What I really wanted was to be able to lay geometry over a graphic for measurements etc. Do you know if that is possible.
I found a temporary workaround: if you first rotate a little the
graphic, then you can scale it as wished. It is because rotating mutate
the ImageMorph in a TransformationMorph. It will be better if the image
could be imported in this later form first.

I can see how to scale and rotate now (Shift middle-button), thanks for the tip. But I just wanted to apply geometric shapes over an image for measurement purposes, and the wheels only scale the geometry and not the image.
I have filled a ticket in the DrGeo bug tracker. Add any comments, here
or in the ticket
I have this DrGeo example with a Newton telescope picture and an
interactive model build with DrGeo canvas, but so far I have not
investigated much in integrating picture in the canvas.
