About gvfsd-metadata

I need a hint about gvfsd-metadata using mate on bsd. Or dual-core cpu, quad-core cpu ore an old laptop single core, the gvfsd is an obstacle and does not accelerate anything, vice versa, it slows down many processes, coming from gnome. So someone can give me a hint how to wipe it out for good? I set it as a cron-job to be done every minute, but this cannot be the solution.

pkill gvfsd-metadata

Thanks in advance.

A quick and dirty fix is to make a copy of and then remove the metadata file using;

# > cp ${HOME}/.local/share/gvfs-metadata "new_file_name"
# > rm ${HOME}/.local/share/gvfs-metadata

If there are any issues you can regress by copying it back.

Don't forget to run your pkill after deleting the file.
