NAME
tracker-preferences - Preferences editor for tracker-miner-fs SYNOPSIS
tracker-preferences DESCRIPTION
tracker-preferences is a graphical configuration front end for the tracker-miner-fs which crawls and mines data from the filesystem to be stored in the Tracker databases. Importantly, the TRACKER_USE_CONFIG_FILES environment variable which can be used by the tracker-miner-fs and other binaries for switching from GSettings to config files is not supported by tracker-preferences. This means that configuration changes (usually stored in $HOME/.config/tracker) must be manually updated when not using GSettings. SEE ALSO
tracker-miner-fs(1), tracker-control(1), tracker-store(1). GNU

NAME
tracker-miner-fs - Used to crawl the file system to mine data. SYNOPSIS
tracker-miner-fs [OPTION...] DESCRIPTION
tracker-miner-fs is not supposed to be run by the user since it is started by its .desktop file when the user logs in. It can also be started manually of course for debugging purposes. You can not run more than one instance of this at the same time. tracker-miner-fs mines information about applications and files only. OPTIONS
-?, --help Show summary of options. -V, --version Returns the version of this binary. -v, --verbosity={0|1|2|3} Sets the logging level, 0=errors, 1=minimal, 2=detailed, 3=debug. -s, --initial-sleep=SECONDS Sets the initial sleep time before crawling the file system is started. If the --no-daemon option is used, this option is ignored. -n, --no-daemon Tells the miner to exit once all indexing has finished and the database is up to date. This is not the default mode of operation for the miner, usually it stays around acting like a daemon to monitor file updates which may occur over time. This option renders the --initial-sleep option moot. -e, --eligible=FILE Checks if FILE is eligible for being mined based on the current configuration rules. In addition to this, it will check if FILE would be monitored for changes. This works with non-existing FILE arguments as well as existing FILE arguments. -d, --disable-miner=MINER Tells the daemon to disable the in-house miners it supports. Depending on build options, this can be 'Files', 'Applications' and 'Userguides'. This option can be provided more than once to diasable multiple miners. Disable in this case means the miner is not started, though all miners still register themselves on D-Bus and appear there, no actual action is performed otherwise (such as crawling, setting up monitors, or checking mtimes against the file system). ENVIRONMENT
TRACKER_USE_LOG_FILES Don't just log to stdout and stderr, but to log files too which are kept in $HOME/.local/share/tracker/. This came into effect in 0.15.3 and 0.16.0. After this version of Tracker, logging to file (usually useful for debugging) can only be done by declaring this environment variable. TRACKER_USE_CONFIG_FILES Don't use GSettings, instead use a config file similar to how settings were saved in 0.10.x. That is, a file which is much like an .ini file. These are saved to $HOME/.config/tracker/ SEE ALSO
