after installing from the graphical installer I found out that if I delete some file or folder from the desktop (using right click > delete) the icon still stays there as if it hasnt been deleted. The trash icon updates correctly. Is this how its suppose to work?
After deleting something I tried running xfdesktop --reload from the terminal and nothing happened. The only solution is killing xfdesktop and running it again, which sucks of course.
This is what dbus-monitor prints when something is deleted, i dont know if this helps:
method call sender=:1.28 -> dest=org.xfce.FileManager path=/org/xfce/FileManager; interface=org.xfce.Trash; member=MoveToTrash array [ string "file:///home/jrr/Desktop/test" ] string ":0.0" signal sender=:1.0 -> dest=(null destination) path=/org/xfce/FileManager; interface=org.xfce.Trash; member=TrashChanged boolean true signal sender=:1.0 -> dest=(null destination) path=/org/xfce/FileManager; interface=org.xfce.Trash; member=TrashChanged boolean true
Needless to say that if I create or delete something directly in the Desktop directory it doesnt show up in the desktop either.
Anyone knows what the problem might be?
Thanks Nick, installing gamin did the trick.
Maybe it should be added to the dependency list for xfdesktop or something, I did see any mention to it.
(I also tried fam first but this problem came up: http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/free … 13911.html. I dont know if you can use fam with xfdesktop)
I've got the same problem with Thunar. I have Xubuntu and installed Xfce 4 from source. I don't have fam installed, but for some reason it worked before I installed from source. If I try to install the fam package, apt wants to remove a whole crapload of unrelated packages (epiphany-browser, anjuta, libgnomeui, ............ .....). What do I do?
Because the latest version isn't in the Dapper repository.
