Description of problem:
if I save a file to ~Desktop or download to there the file is not seen
by nautilus, either in file manager nor on tne monitor itself. In
order to see it, I must either logout/login, reboot, drag another file
to the Desktop, or (I'm told) issue a ctrl-r (shades of F5!).
This same bug had appeared in FC2 (#124137) and was fixed and closed
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.open a program which will save a file
2.choose sav as --> /home/<user>/Desktop
Actual Results: the Desktop remains unchanged
Expected Results: An icon appears, representing the file just saved
I have the same problem here. And if I open ~/Desktop in a separate
window, the file is there. Humorous :)
What version of gamin, if < 0.0.14 then the bug is closed there.
You went and fixed it while my back was turned!
this bug is *NOT* fixed in gamin version > than 0.0.15
works for me, works for others, you will need to provide more
informations about how to reproduce your problem if you want it
to be processed.
Save a file from firefox to desktop -> file does not show up on
desktop or in nautilus browser but is there (checked cli). If you try
to resave then you get the file exists error message, if you do not
overwrite the file it suddenly shows up in nau. and desktop
occurence -> with a higher version of GAMIN (0.0.15 and up, even
if you downgrade to 0.0.14 problem does not occur again.
This problem is occurring for me in the new Fedora Core 4 Release.
Is the permanent 'fix' for this issue to simply never use GAMIN > 0.0.14?
