    The setting labelled "Show hidden folders" (System Settings > Desktop Search > Indexing > Customize Folders) toggles the "index hidden folders= true/false" in nepomukstrigirc.

    By default nepomukindexer will index /home and all sub-directories below, unless explicitly told otherwise.

    The method of exclusion is rather convoluted to say the least, with several options:

    1) Specify the indexing from "Customize Folders" - Sub-directories inherit the indexing status of their immediate parent, unless explicitly altered on a by directory basis.

    2) Use the check boxes (System Settings > Desktop Search > Indexing) for particular types. (Newly added option)

    3) Specify the explicit Mime type to exclude (System Settings > Desktop Search > Indexing > Advanced) - If at (2) for example Index Videos is deselected then "video/*" is added to the Mime type exclude list.

    4) Specify file name patterns (System Settings > Desktop Search > Indexing > Advanced).

    Initially I had problems with directories being included I thought I'd excluded, and vice versa, especially when adding new directories. Together with the badly labelled "Show hidden folders", which I had taken to mean "show in the directory tree". I was on the verge of the "I don't want this freakin' nepomuk stuff!" - I think I had got so bogged down that I couldn't see the wood for the trees.

    Personally I found that explicitly including/excluding directories (1), together with file name patterns (4) was the most reliable, albeit time consuming way.



    I know it's a new database, but, what happens if you run "nepomukcleaner" ?

    Also "nepomukshow" (use --help for options) is quite useful to see just what information has been indexed for any particular file.
    Thank you Paul, loads there to play around with! I WILL NOT LET IT BEAT ME!

    (When does 13.1 go gold again?, fresh install again, wipe out all .kde4/ settings, hope that it finally gives up and starts to work properly? Mind you, I tried that with 11.3, 11.4, 12.1, 12.2, and 12.3....... it has never worked before!)

    That's the spirit I like to see!

    One other I forgot "nepomukindexer" (--help) Able to force indexing of a file, clear the indexed data, or stream it's contents to stdout.

    I've got approx 9.5k files indexed, mostly pdf/odt/jpeg/mp3 - "soprano-virtuoso.db" is only 210MB...
