Desktop icons don't refresh automatically [solved]

I've just installed xfce4.4 RC1.  When I add or manipulate files on the Desktop, the Desktop doesn't refresh with the changes.  I have to click on the Desktop and press F5, and then they appear.

Did you compile thunar with fam/gamin support?

Re: Desktop icons don't refresh automatically [solved]

I'm running the Thunar that compiles along with the Xfce4.4RC1 graphical installer.  At every opportunity I installed whatever optional packages were suggested, but I didn't come across fam/gamin.  I'll look into it.

In a possibly related problem, every time I empty the trash the desktop clears of icons.  When I check my Desktop settings, the checkbox for "Allow Xfce to manage the desktop" is unchecked.  When I check it again the icons reappear on the desktop.  This bug occurs every single time I empty the trash.

Recompiling Thunar with the libgamin-dev package installed worked like a charm.  Thanks!
