[SOLVED] Files sometimes not showing when in media

Postby erie88 on Wed Feb 20, 2013 8:50 am

I just starts using KDE and pretty much love it more than Cinnamon. Plus, there are some options that are in KDE but not in Cinnamon. Anyway, my problem is sometimes files (newly created) inside a folder is not visible but when i checked the folder description it is there. This only happens when in media (external harddisk) and also in both single and two panels mode. And I'll have to move location to home and back to media again just to make the files visible. Moving up to one folder path didn't help. Anyone ever encounter this ?

Thanks.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I assume you mean in Dolphin?
Try:-
view --> reload F5
Or simply hit F5
You can also add a Reload button to the toolbar:-
Settings --> Configure Toolbars...

Thank you, 741cc. I didn't realize "reload" option is not enabled by default in dolphin.

This also what is annoying me. When a fileis placed into a folder which is open in Dolphin, it does not show up. You need to use F5 to reload the contents of the folder, which, if I may be honest, is a bit strange for a modern system.
No more Windows and Gates since Ubuntu 8.04, used 9.04, 10.04, then switched to Kubuntu because of Unity and Gnome 3.
After that it is Mint, used 9 till 16 all in KDE version and loving it.
