I think the tracker support can be move to a brasero-tracker
sub-package. If not, we should remove brasero from the Xfce Desktop
Environment pattern altogether.

And maybe tracker should not be autostarted in other desktops than GNOME at

E.g. if you happen to have tracker installed and login to KDE, tracker is
running as well in addition to KDE's file indexer (baloo). So your files get
indexed twice without any apparent benefit.

Though I just had a look and tracker has this in its autostart files:

XFCE is explicitly mentioned there, and KDE as well (the latter I find
pointless anyway, I have no opinion on XFCE).

Maybe someone should file a bug report?

Kind Regards,

If you, like me, run both GNOME and KDE changing the "OnlyShowIn" by removing
"KDE;" is a good thing to do. My experience is that having tracker and baloo
running at the same time makes KDE less responsive, to put it mildly.
