I, too, am having problems with gamin. In particular:
I can be in Nautilus, staring at my /home directory. I can download a
file, using firefox, directly into my /home directory. Nautilus will
not report the change until I manually refresh my view.
Moving on: that downloaded file is typically a .zip or .tar.gz. I like
to extract these by right-clicking on them and selecting "extract here".
The file will extract, but not show the new folder created unless I
Also, any changes I make via terminal don't show up unless - you
guessed it - I manually refresh.
These things are unpredictable - sometimes, gamin actually works. I'd
say it doesn't work about 75% of the time, though.
(Note: These are all VAST, VAST improvements from FAM, which would
steal 100% CPU until restarted, or prevent unmounts for hotplug
devices, or other such high-level stuff. Frankly, I'll take gamin over
FAM any day, as it does nothing disasterous like Fam did - but it also
simply doesn't work much of the time.)
