C::B Linux not checking file changes like Windows
« on: March 09, 2022, 09:37:24 am »
On Windows if you change a CBP file that is included in the workspace file loaded it askes if you want to reload the workspace when the CBP file change is detected, but this does not occur on Linux.
Is this expected or not?

On Linux cb also asks, whether it should reload externally changed files. I like that feature. I regularly observe this when I revert the latest uncommitted change(s) in version control. Reloading the whole project/workspace occurs as well, when the corresponding .cbp or .workspace files have changed. As far as I remember, that has not changed over the last years. I have not checked, what happens when you marked the projects within a workspace dependant on each other.

I use cb-trunk combined with wx-trunk on several different linuxes (ubuntu, arch, pi).

Thanks. Looks like I need to figure out what is wrong with my Linux configuration.

I think the issue I am seeing is related to https://sourceforge.net/p/codeblocks/tickets/663/ .
