Ubuntu 13.04 no longer has an option to keep certain folders from being indexed. Why was this removed and how do you reinstate it?
You can customize the index locations/folders using tracker-gui .
Install it with this button:
or using the following command:
sudo apt-get install tracker-gui
After installing, go to the Locations tab. Click on the + button and add the specific directories/locations that you want to index.
It goes without saying that the drive has to be mounted already to be able to be indexed.
Hope that helps.
Or You can go here and add to "don't record activity":
Or else, You can also do the following : Install activity-log-manager
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:zeitgeist/ppa sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install activity-log-manager
You can then launch it by searching for it in Unity. Once it's loaded, you'll find the option to prevent certain folders being logged in the Files tab. Hope that helps.
Here is a workaround, which concerns indexing in apache:
Main thing is to add some code with editor in conf-file like it is done here in conf-file of apache (this code-snippet is an example) :
> <Directory /var/www/domain.com/pdfs> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks > </Directory>
