All I have been able to do is to activate it in the startup programs, but not in the privacy settings, it looks different now. I also run from a terminal:

sudo chmod -x /usr/bin/zeitgeist-daemon
sudo chmod -x /usr/bin/zeitgeist-datahub
sudo chmod -x /usr/lib/zeitgeist/zeitgeist-ft  

during deactivation, how can undo this?


You have removed the executable rights with -x.

Here is your undo:

sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/zeitgeist-daemon
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/zeitgeist-datahub
sudo chmod +x /usr/lib/zeitgeist/zeitgeist-ft  

These are the settings in my system:

% ls -la /usr/bin/zeitgeist-daemon
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 214216 Mär 10 17:00 /usr/bin/zeitgeist-daemon
% ls -la /usr/bin/zeitgeist-datahub     
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 131696 Mär 10 17:00 /usr/bin/zeitgeist-datahub

Or reinstall the packages:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall zeitgeist-datahub
sudo apt-get install --reinstall zeitgeist-core

I can't find /usr/lib/zeitgeist/zeitgeist-ft for Ubuntu

  • thanks I had to reinstall zeitgeist, the other option could not run cause I was missing a file. – Giulo Figlio Jun 11 '15 at 21:02
