I installed 42.2 Beta 2 with the Xfce window manager. With that I get,
without me asking for it, tracker 1.8.0. This program is launched, without me
asking for it, to burn up cpu cycles and thrash disks indexing all my files
including videos and photos. It is of no use to me - I do not need such
"help".

I understand tracker is associated with Gnome, which I did not chose at
installation time.

When I remove tracker, Yast tells me that I have to remove Gnome's Brasero as well - ok, so Brasero goes, but why must a CD burner call for indexing of every CD it sees?

Could tracker _not_ be included with Xfce installations? The users of Xfce are
looking for something simple and lightweight. For myself I install locate
(package mlocate) which does all the indexing I need.
