ok so here is the odd issue i'm having. ill move something from one folder to another or unzip a file and nothing looks any different i have to hit F5 or ctrl+R to refresh the screen and then the changes show. i'm know to arch so any help will be greatly appreciated. maybe it has something to do with xrefresh or something but i have no idea. typing xrefresh in bash will just do the same as F5. it was working. and i don't have any idea what i did to break it.
maybe this is needed i am running nvidia and mate desktop. i have cairo-compmanager runing to handle composing effects. i tried disabling cairo to see if that had anything to do with it which it didnt. but any help would be greatly appreciated.
