    Default Nepomuk ?

    Hello community,

    since I updated to 12.1 I thought I would give Stringi/Nepomuk a new chance. Up to now it was always the first thing I disabled (at least in 11.4, but also in 11.3 if it existed then).

    The good news is that, plasma no longer crashes when it is enabled, contrary to my prior experience. However, it is indexing my /home directory the whole day and shows a database size of 1GB and 53.000 files (and growing). First of all, I hardly imagine that I need all these files indexed. Moreover, this is a working laptop where HD space is a valuable asset. But what concerns me most is that the laptop fan has not stopped rotating the whole day.

    1. Is this going to stop, once it has finished indexing for the first time (probably in a week or so), or will I have to disable it once again?
    2. Is this massive database, which as far as I thought should only contain metadata, normal, or should I be afraid there is some kind of leak?
    3. Does anybody of you, actually use Stringi/Nepomuk and see's some added value in it? Meaning: Do you think it is worth the trouble (and space)?
    4. Depending on what it really is supposed to do, is there a way to limit the directories it indexes?

    Thank you for providing me enlightenment , and for your thoughts and suggestions on the above.
    Nikos.

    First thing I disabled, but strangulation would be better. There was even a hidden icon for "Nepomuk File Indexing" in my system tray, but it said "Service not running" so I closed it with Quit.

    disable them otherwise?
    That would be Configure Desktop --> Desktop Search --> untick Enable Nepomuc semantic desktop.

    i'm actually using it, quite happily at the moment. i limited the area to
    be indexed, excluding what doesn't make sense to me, and initial indexing
    finises in a few hours.

    i'm not using a notebook and living in a tropical climate, so my fans keep
    running anyway. otherwise performance isn't affected by indexing -- with 4
    CPU cores & 8 GB RAM; might be different with more economic configurations.

    since KDE 4.7.3 i noticed that searching via dolphin does return useful
    results, so i'm actually using it now & then.

    Thanks for that. It seems to work much better now that it's disabled.

    For me I have the Nepomuk enabled & configured the Strigi to only index my Docs, Pictures, Videos, & Music.
    One can do that by doing this
    Kickoff>Configure Desktop>Desktop Search
    1)then checked the Enable Nepomuk Box
    2) Clicked the Desktop Query tab
    3)clicked where it says Custom Index Folders
    4)In the box that shows up checked the boxes of what I wanted indexed unchecked the ones I didn't
    5) clicked OK Then Apply
    Now it works great!
    Here's a How To use it video

    Thank you all!
    I decided to firstly limit the folders that are indexed significantly and give it another week or so to see if it inhibits performance, and if I actually use it.

    It would be interesting to know how that goes. Perhaps you could post back here in a week or so with some comment re performance etc. It might help other users facing the same issue.
