Question about Thunar features

Postby k0tuk on Thu Mar 12, 2009 5:13 am

Hi!

I`ve switched to Linux Mint 6 from 5th version month ago and installed XFCE4 there ( because of a bug with Nvidia Drivers, which made all the eye-candy crippled in Gnome ). Everything works ok at the moment, and i`m slowly configuring all the stuff i need for my everyday life. I got used to Thunar, but there is one thing that annoys me a bit - Thunar doesn`t auto-refresh the contents of the folders. For example: My friend sends me 20 pictures by skype. I open the folder before the transfer finishes and start viewing pictures. To get the newly transferred pictures show up in that folder i have to change to another folder and than get back so that Thunar reads the data in that directory again. So i am wondering - is there something i need to configure in Thunar, or maybe there is a plugin available for this feature? I`ve tried to google for it, but never found anything.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Thunar has mouse gestures.
Not sure if it'll recreate the thumbnails, but click and hold the scroll wheel, on the mouse, then move down to refresh.
Maybe the newer version in Jaunty will fix this problem.
