I already asked this question on the AUCTeX mailing list via Gmane but can't find the question in the mailing list's archive. Therefore I ask here, too.
Since I'm writing a document with many weird named figures I searched for "auctex drag and drop" and found Michal Sojka's posting: <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Dieter Jurzitza created a patch to tex.el that "will not work 'out of the box'". I tried to apply the patch to
tex.el. But it failed. I copied Michal's code to both
tex.el and later
~/.emacs and added
(add-hook 'LaTeX-mode-hook 'auctex-dnd-mode) to
~/.emacs; didn't work.
Output of Messages buffer:

What do I need to do to get Michal's code to work? I have no programming skills ...
I use Emacs 23.3.1 on Ubuntu 11.10 with the latest AUCTeX version (11.86).
[Update:] With the help of Dieter I solved the problem. He sent me a tex.el with Michal's code that I had to byte-compile in Emacs.
