[Patch] Fix: Reloading / Refreshing of symlinked document does not work
Zathura has this neat feature, where it re-renders files when changed on disk. This does not work when the file is symlinked.
In this case, the file is linked to a fuse filesystem. My workdir looks like this:
document.pdf ⇒ /mnt/server/public/document.pdf document.tex
Since I don't control the parameters to zathura myself (It is spawned by vimtex), I can't just do
zathura $(realpath ...).
I think it would be best to 'fix' this in the zathura repo.
I'm not farmiliar with the code though, so I'll just post a very simple patch I made here, and hope someone can comment on it. follow-symlinks.patch
