Gamin is a file and directory monitoring system defined to be a subset of the FAM (File Alteration Monitor) system. It is a service provided by a library which allows for the detection of modification to a file or directory.

Gamin re-implements the FAM specification with inotify. It is newer and more actively maintained than FAM, maintains compatibility with FAM and can replace it in almost every case. It is a GNOME project, but does not have GNOME dependencies.

Installation

Install the gamin package.

If FAM is installed, first disable fam.service and then install gamin; you will be prompted to remove the famAUR[broken link: archived in aur-mirror] package during the installation.
