Default Xfce4 and desktop update [gamin problem]


After installing Xfce4 with all the required dependencies and started Xfce4 after a while I've noticed that the desktop is not updating when adding/removing files or folders from it. I've searched the forum and have been googling and I found out that I need fam/gamin installed so that my desktop updates properly.

Now I have gamin installed with gamin-poller (not kqueue) but I don't see the service gam_server running. I can start it manually from the terminal, but after some seconds it stops by itself with no messages showing.

Can someone please tell me how to configure gamin with Xfce or point me to a guide/link for it?
