Thread: Dolphin does not refresh file list automaticaly

  1. #1

    Default Dolphin does not refresh file list automaticaly

    Hi,

    I found that sometimes if I have opened file manager window (Dolphin) it does not refresh list. Example, if I already have Dolphin opened and then create file in Terminal - i need to press F5 (refresh) to see newly created file

    Is there any setting for this or is anybody aware how to fix this issue?

    Thanks

    i think that posters problem was a little different, in that the user
    said that even clicking reload didn't show the newly created file...

    the problem this poster describes is also not seen here (with the below
    system) so i guess this one is either a damaged, corrupted or
    misconfigured system...or, maybe a bug...

    hard to tell..

    @tosiara try adding a new test user, log out and then back in as the new
    test user and see if the problem remains...if it does not then something
    in your /home config files is flakey...if it persists, i don't know
    where to start...

    but, you can start by telling us what operating system and desktop
    environment and versions you are being used....and, did the system
    always behave this way or did it 'suddenly' change?

    and please show us the output of entering the following into a terminal

    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    and copy/paste the output back to this thread using the instructions
    here: http://goo.gl/i3wnr

    I had another example of this behaviour recently. With a dolphin window still open (unintentionally), in Konsole I mounted a data partition to a directory in /home/myuser_id/. Then I opened a new dolphin window to view its contents, but the mounted directory was empty. Being in a hurry, I closed both dolphin windows, and on opening a new one the mounted directory's content was listed.

    The issue happens once or twice a week. I workaround this problem by LogOff (or restart the system), so logging as other user will sure solve the issue but just because I do log off. I will try creating a new user and try using this user instead of an old one for a week and see if the issue is related to profile dir.

    My system is 11.4 32bit, with 3rd party VLC and MPlayer installed only. Also I used multimedia repo for updating ALSA

    do as you wish (it *is* your system) but most of the folks around here
    think you will have a more stable and reliable system if you were to
    disable these repos: 1, 4, 5, 6, 7 (leaving only 2, 3, 9, and 10; for
    rationale see the paragraph beginning with "IMPORTANT" in this cite:
    http://tinyurl.com/33qc9vu)

    then, you can save yourself a little time by turning off the
    auto-refresh to 1, 4, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11 (rationale: no need to refresh
    what you are not using, plus oss is unchanging [like the DVD])

    and, if you need to update (for example) alsa, enable the repo, refresh
    it, and do the update--while carefully watching that it only does what
    you wish...then disable and stop refreshing the repo....doing it the way
    you have now it might at any point suck in something you didn't really
    want from any of those repos--and, you might not notice...just because
    they are enabled..

    i have a hunch that when your problem will go away when you have moved
    away from something corrupted in your /home config files....however, if
    that does not work...then it might be needed to run a cleansing of your
    loaded software to get back to the basics of the four basic repos, and
    get away from what ever software was installed that should not have been..

    Today the issue happened again.
    The user was recreated week ago. The system rebooted 2 days ago, since then suspended to RAM about 5-10 times.

    In the screenshot there are 3 .doc files which have been just converted to PDF. Dolphin does not show new files, but in terminaI can list new files

    This has happened with me too. I feel this is due to the time interval set for automatically refreshing file lists. Its should be buried somewhere in the config files (hard coding it seems bad to me).
