Description loigu 2009-11-08 12:16:50 UTC
Version:           2.1.1 (using KDE 4.3.1)
Installed from:    openSUSE RPMs

When using files tab, there is no 'refresh' button, so when directory content changes, there is need for going out of the folder and then back to refresh content.

This is very annoying for me, since I use nfs-mounted music library, so very often when starting amarok, the directory is empty (but amarok opens it) and after mount I must go out and back to view the content. F5 won't work either :/

+1 for the feature. I have files on a local HDD (not NFS or anything), but occasionally, the file list is not refreshed. I could not reliably reproduce this bug and the only workaround for me is restarting Amarok (2.4.3). Until this bug is somehow hunted down, a "refresh" button would be helpful.

Same problem on my side with NFS and local HDD.
Even when getting out of the directory and getting back in (using or not "previous" and "next" buttons.

OS : Gentoo/Linux x86_64 kernel 3.2.1-r2
Amarok 2.4.3-r1 with kdelibs 4.7.4
