Thread: File managers do not autorefresh and worse

    Default File managers do not autorefresh and worse

    Hi Everyone.

    I have recently moved to Leap 15.1 with xfce.

    One issue I have is that file managers do not automatically refresh when changes happen.
    For example, add a file to a directory, delete the file (outside of the file manager), but the original directory still contains a file like originally.

    I have tried deleting the .cache directory and rebooting to no avail.

    Also, if I use thunar specifically, navigate to a directory, and then delete the directory from the outside (e.g., using command line), attempt to refresh thunar manually (by pressing Ctrl+R) results in it crashing.

    Any ideas?

    Did you try F5?

    Yes, a manual refresh may be in order for now.
    If you're really missing the feature, I'd recommend submitting a bug, even through https://bugzilla.opensuse.org.
    Be sure to include detailed information about versions when the feature worked and not.

    If a Bug Report then, please raise one against the File Manager you're running on Xfce …
