How to auto-refresh a shared directory view?

Please, how could Thunar auto-refresh  when a shared directory is modified?

Hello and welcome.

Which distro, which version of Xfce and which version of Thunar are you running?

Is this a local or remote directory? If remote, can you give some info on what kind and how it is mounted?

A remote directory with GVFS

Re: How to auto-refresh a shared directory view?

This topic/thread from about 7 years ago was the last time I looked into this. It appears it is an issue with GVFS/Gio. I believe other file managers (nautilus, caja) suffer from the same issue. 

If you manually mount using CIFS then it will auto-refresh.

I just tested with an smb mount - no refresh through Gvfs, does refresh through manual mount.
