Tracker seems to be the gnome counter part to the nepomuck /anaconda trash

Its looks like that the GNOME and KDE are only usefull for single user/
single PC usage. Does somebody knows a GUI for Linux which does NOT
introduces these indexing crap ?

In KDE4, you can simply set the option to disable Nepomuk. It's on by
default, but it's easy to switch off.. just a check box in the config,
and it's off. You could easily propagate that option setting to all
users if all users want to disable the feature.


Disabling Nepomuk does not affect tracker. In addition to other responses you
can also go into Yast(2) under "Softwarw Management" and de-install tracker and
all its dependencies.
