Re: [opensuse] Disabling tracker without deinstalling gnome.

Why remove it?
Is it actually causing a problem?
I assume you've verified it even starts when you log into KDE?

You can just remove the miners, in which case tracker won't actually do
anything. It looks like you can remove those without any dependency
issue:

rpm --test --verbose --erase tracker-miner-files\
tracker-miner-thunderbird \
tracker-miner-firefox

Or use the tracker preferences UI to just set the miners not to mine
anything [you can set where it will and will not index].

Or the best option - use it! It works very well and if you get used to
using it saves a lot of time.

I use KDE but would like to keep the gnome installation
zypper rm gives me:
barney:~ # zypper rm tracker
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
Resolving package dependencies.
The following packages are going to be REMOVED:
gnome-control-center gnome-control-center-branding-openSUSE
gnome-panel-applet-tracker gnome-session gnome-session-default-session
gnome-session-fallback-session gnome-shell
gnome-shell-browser-plugin libtracker-extract-0_12-0
libtracker-miner-0_12-0 libtracker-sparql-0_12-0 nautilus
nautilus-extension-tracker-tags patterns-openSUSE-devel_gnome
patterns-openSUSE-gnome_basis tracker tracker-devel tracker-gui
tracker-miner-files tracker-miner-firefox tracker-miner-thunderbird
This means that gnome-shell depends on tracker.

Looks like; good thing to. Who doesn't want to be able to search their
data? That's just crazy.
