Title: Easy Way to Disable Beagle Completely During Installation

openSUSE-11.2: Evaluation
Requester: Important

Requested by: JP Rosevear (jproseve)

We need to either have beagle off by default and allow a user to enable
it the first time they search or provide an install option to turn it

- Better Beagle Acceptance (feature/id: 303367)
- Easy way to disable beagle completely during install
(novell/bugzilla/id: 282678)

I prefer to start with disabled, offer option to run at first search.
We are proliferating checkboxes in the installer too much.

#8: Stephan Kulow (coolo) (2009-02-10 15:32:39) (reply to #1)
I wholehearty agree. Having specific applications in the installer is
definitely something that we shouldn't do. Have it disabled by default
and make it easy to enable.

#9: Manuel Bejarano (mbejaranoc) (2009-02-11 09:29:51) (reply to #1)
100% agree

#2: Kevin Dupuy (kdupuy9) (2009-01-29 23:40:17)
I prefer a more sane option than disabling it by default... instead,
allow the user to go in and uninstall it from the installation software
screen, just as they would any other app (perhaps make 'Desktop Search'
pattern, installed by default?) We just need to insure that
uninstalling Beagle doesn't throw up any dependency errors.

Every single openSUSE install I've done has resulted in beagle being
removed. It slows down the computer, and the firefox extension throws
lots of errors. I'm quite happy with how easy it is to remove, and I
can see why it's useful -- but unless its seriously improved, I think
it should be removed (by default)

#4: Jan Engelhardt (jengelh) (2009-01-30 15:22:34)
Maybe pulseaudio should be too, for slightly similar reasons. :)

#5: Rastislav Krupansky (ra100) (2009-01-31 13:10:36) (reply to #4)
exactly right ;-)

#6: Thomas Beimel (rheydtergekko) (2009-02-01 16:22:09)
Yes this would be an perfect option during installation. Especially
because I prefer to have a new installation that consumes as less
resources as possible. I do not need indexing service and I think many
others as well.

#7: Andri Andreas Priyanto (turtlix) (2009-02-05 11:20:44)
I haven't use beagle since I install openSUSE, and maybe wouldn't or
never But I don't know other user.
I always remove beagle from my gnome-session-properties.

+ Beagle should be disabled by default. Everyone in the DFW Linux Users
+ Group complained when Suse added it. It causes nothing but trouble for
+ me.
