I also don't think this is a good approach, for one the notifications often fire very soon - it might not even be possible to get mimetype of the file (not to mention .part-type files), and I'm not so sure the API enables you to determine that an operation is a move/copy. You'd probably just see a new file somewhere and a while later another file disappearing.
IMO it'd be better to wait for this year's TaskView API to mature, and we'd just write a data provider which will use its DBus service. -- Monitoring for new files https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/602211 You received this bug notification because you are a member of Zeitgeist Framework Team, which is subscribed to Zeitgeist Framework.

Recurse XDG dirs and single iterate $HOME Does this make sense to us? _______________________________________________ Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~zeitgeist Post to : email@example.com Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~zeitgeist More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
