The german arch wiki about xfce  said that gamin can do the job too but
this lines be not in the english arch wiki. Gamin is in the community repo
and so you can give it a try with this (if you have the community repo
# pacman -Rd fam && pacman -S gamin
The german wiki said that there is no other action (rc.conf and starting a
daemon) necessary. Sometimes you have to restart the X server after it.
To be more on the safe side you can search first in the forum
(http://forum.xfce.org) for relevant things about gamin.
Good luck, Attila
