pcmanfm-mod on LXDE won't refresh
« on: October 01, 2012, 09:04:05 pm »
Hi, I recently did a update/reinstall on pcmanfm-mod, I don't know why it doesn't refresh anymore, when I add new files thru samba, or even delete files on the same pcmanfm-mod window, it doesn't refresh automatically. I have to click refresh (F5) to see the changes, which is quite annoying, I don't know if this is a bug or just a minor config problem.
Also as a side, the button on the drop down menu for open as root option doesn't work "no reaction when i clicked the button".

I recall updating quite a lot of packages,  I dont know if those could cause the problem, should I downgrade the dependencies to check?
Thanks,
Ted

I find this problem not very consistent, the first few minutes after reboot, the refresh comes pretty automated, but after the first few minutes, pcmanfm-mod becomes less consistent. I have attempted to downgraded the dependencies:

This has made it a bit more "consistent" but I don't know if I will experience this problem again.

I think I found the problem:
updating glib2 package from 2.28.7 to 2.32.2 causes this problem. I wonder if anyone can fix this?
Thanks,

Since pcmanfm-mod is no longer actively maintained, it seems unlikely that these kinds of incompatibilities will be addressed.  :(

You may try using its successor, spacefm, and see how it does.
