Intellij IDEA SCSS File Watcher

I use IntelliJ IDEA on a Centos VM for AngularJS development at work, and I have a FileWatcher configured to compile the SCSS files from the designer into CSS when they change. It stopped working one day. After days of bad behaviour because I did not have the correct...

Yet another Airlink 101 DD-WRT adventure
