Tracker seems to be the gnome counter part to the nepomuck /anaconda trash
on KDE4. Since it has a mess of dependencies as well i decided to disable
its execution via

$ chmod 000  /usr/lib/tracker-[a-z]*

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
all its dependencies.

.... I'm not that dumb... the OP commented on both KDE and Gnome... I
presented a possible solution for KDE. When you use KDE, and you
decide you do not want desktop indexing, disabling or turning off the
indexer is a simple config change in the KDE setup....
