I use konqueror as filemanager.
Konqueror (3.2.3) in Mdk 10.1 CE is now refusing to provide
automatic updating of directories, that is konqueror does
not display automatically the changed size of growing or shrinking of any files
(but new files are displayed; and the refresh button works, that is file size is then updated)
It used to work well.
Anybody knows where this feature is enabled / disabled. Thanks
--- UPDATE ---------
Problem solved by reinstalling mandrake 10.1 CE in "update mode".
I am still non the wiser as to where the feature lives.
So the question above still stands.
--- END UPDATE --------
I have cleared the cache via the konqueror menu
It affects all users. I have deleted the .KDE of the main user (no success).
I have look into the /etc/kde and some of the konqueror & KDE rc file.
No success, not sure what the feature would be called. It has been a few days of tinkering now.
I have tried most of the config option available via the konqueror menu.
For the life of me, I cannot remember doing sthging that disabled the feature.
No luck with the manual, and the faqs, nor google.
If nothing works, I might need to re-install konqueror...
No luck with the faq there, but the feature is clearly described
One other interesting feature of Konqueror is that it provides automatic updating of directories - if a file is created in a directory which is currently being viewed, it is not necessary to refresh or reload the directory; Konqueror automatically shows the new content. The same situation occurs with files which have been deleted - they simply disappear, without any refreshing/reloading necessary.>>
