    Unhappy tracker spftware

    I do not understand the persistance of KDE team (or is it SuSE) for these trackers that make the vendilation of my laptop go crazy.

    I seem to have found a solution:

    sudo mv /usr/lib/tracker-extract /usr/lib/tracker-extract.BLOCK

    then kill the process and your laptop runs quitly.

    I wonder if there are problems to be expected in the future with this (brutal but very satisfying ) solution

    BR

    P.S. I tried through the "configure desktop" but I was simply ignored

    I'm pretty sure that they are installed as part of Gnome (not KDE), though they are set to start in any desktop.

    I believe you are correct. I do not have Gnome installed, and that file does not exist. (KDE installation)

    Not really. It is "desktop-neutral", but part of gnome.

    Code:
    cer@Telcontar:~> rpm -qi tracker
    Name        : tracker
    Version     : 0.16.3
    Release     : 2.5.3

    Group       : Productivity/Other
    ....
    URL         : http://projects.gnome.org/tracker/
    ....
    Summary     : Powerful object database, tag/metadata database, search tool and indexer
    Description :
    Tracker is a powerful desktop-neutral first class object
    database, tag/metadata database, search tool and indexer.

    :-)

    Yes, that is included by gnome. But the part about being
    "desktop-neutral" is... peculiar. KDE also has a search tool (sorry, I
    forgot the name), which can not be used by gnome. The idea of the
    tracker people was that KDE and others would use it, but instead, KDE
    designed their own tool. Apparently, I don't know the whys and details.

    And neither tool is the first one. We have seen a few being born and die
    in the last decade.

    I use Recoll in my KDE. Great, lightweight, fast, and fully under my control.

    I think zeitgeist also comes with Gnome.

    I think it's "baloo" for KDE. At least, that's the one people have complained about. I turn it off.

    Seconded! Recoll is a truly excellent piece of software written to fulfill a "real-world" need.
