Description of problem:
File-roller doesn't refresh the nautilus after extraction to a folder.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open nautilus and browse to directury with a compress file
2. right click and select "extract here"
3. forced to hit Ctrl+R to refresh content of window
auto refresh on content change.
I found out that if I save a file to ~/ from any program with ~/ open
nautilus doesn't refresh automatically. so I changed it over to a
Actually, Nautilus doesn't seem to refresh its windows at all.
However, it refreshes the desktop automatically.
I've checked, and fam is running in the background.
PS: I think you should change the summary of the bug, as it is not
related to file-roller at all.
In Bug #119901, Dan Williams said:
"FAM has been disabled for a while due to
SELinux (FAM seems to be a security hole you could drive a truck
through), and this is being discussed. Becuase so much of the desktop
depends on FAM being active, its probably going to be re-enabled for
FC2 Test 3, we're not sure."
If it's true (which i don't doubt), that explains why Nautilus doesn't
refresh its windows. But that doesn't explain why it *does* refresh
the desktop automatically and why it still doesn't refresh its windows
after I have manually launched fam as root...
fam is reenabled now.
After the latest development builds (Apr 16th), Nautilius still
doesn't refresh it's windows, with fam enabled.
[scott@curran103 scott]$ ps auxw | grep -i fam
scott 3076 0.0 0.0 4808 604 pts/2 R 20:29 0:00 grep -i fam
again to cause this bug, I right click on a compress file, select
"extract here" and am forced to ctrl+R
It's fixed in Apr 17 builds
This is broken again in test3
