Real time files in thunar

I recently installed xfce on a new system and I can't get thunar to behave like I had it before. Back then changes in files would show up on the fly in thunar, but now I can't get it to do this. I have to press reload to see changes that aren't made through thunar. What am I missing to get this behavior back? I compiled from the installer as usual no different than before. The trash service and such is working fine.

Re: Real time files in thunar

Make sure you have the fam daemon running or gamin installed. To check if Thunar is compiled with hal or gamin support run:

objdump -p libthunar-vfs-1.so | grep NEEDED

in (for example) /usr/local/lib, where you've installed Thunar.

In this list you need an entry libgamin or libfam. If both are not there you need to compile thunar again with the devel packages of gamin/fam installed.

It was gamin-devel
That did it, thank you.
