Description:

File Watch is a tool for monitoring file events within any directory. You can use it to find out what files are being accessed, created, modified etc. by programs at certain stages. It uses incron for monitoring and interacts with the user through kdialog and kwatch.

Requirements:

- incron - Filesystem event monitor - http://inotify.aiken.cz
- KDE desktop (for kdialog)
- kwatch - KDE Log File Viewer - http://www.m-j-s.net/kde

Limitations:

1. incron does not seem to be able to monitor files with spaces in their name
2. directories created after starting File Watch cannot be monitored
3. it can be run only by root (incron needs root access)
