I am having this issue with Dolphin file manager, whenever I download a file from my browser (firefox). The downloaded file doesn’t show up in dolphin. It seem dolphin is either not updating/refreshing when new files are added.

To make the file show up I have to close dolphine and reopen to see the file. Or I either need to manually refresh dolphin for the file to show up.

Is there a way to fix this issue, so dolphin can automagically refresh when ever a new file is added to a directory.

I did search for some answers, but they were issues related to other distros and those changes did not apply to fedora.

Any help/advice is high appreciated.
Thank you in advance.

I experienced the same behavior, but sometimes it refreshes OK . I don’t know what is going on.

Same here after 6 months you reported it. Not only when downloading a new file, but also when uncompress/extract tar.gz files or just copy files, Dolphin is not showing them.

My system is up to date:
Operating System: Fedora Linux 37
KDE Plasma Version: 5.26.5
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.102.0

Me too. Same problem. Dolphin does not show a file after i change the name of that file. Nor when a download occurs.

Survey says: Nerr!

I updated to the latest bits about 15 minutes ago:

We’ve been on Plasma 5.27 for about 4 days.

I just opened Dolphin to a temp directory and then created a file in that directory in konsole. The new file appeared in the Dolphin display. I renamed the file in Dolphin and the change was reflected. I changed the name in konsole and it was also reflected in Dolphin.

Not saying your observations are not correct, just that it’s not a universal issue.
