I very much want to have desktop search working on a new Ubuntu Gnome 17.04 installation. I realize that initial indexing might take a while, but for more than 12 hours,
tracker status has returned:
Currently indexed: 93634 files, 6371 folders Remaining space on database partition: 226.6 GB (45.10%) Data is still being indexed: Estimated less than one second left
There should be more than 94000 files indexed, after excluded files have been removed. I can't tell if the process has crashed, or is still working on files.
tracker daemon has returned the same result all this time:
Store: 12 May 2017, 15:45:13: ✓ Store - Idle Miners: 12 May 2017, 15:45:13: ✓ Userguides - Idle 12 May 2017, 15:45:13: ✓ File System - Idle 12 May 2017, 15:45:13: 0% Extractor - Extracting metadata 12 May 2017, 15:45:13: ✓ Applications - Idle
and using the
-w options return no updates.
tracker-extract is using one of my cores at 100% and has been all of this time.
How can I tell if tracker is having problems or just taking its time indexing roughly 200 GB of files?
