       tracker-tag - Add, remove and list tags.


       tracker tag FILE1 [FILE2 ...] [-l <limit>] [-o <offset>] [-r]
       tracker tag -t [[TAG1] [TAG2] ...] [-s] [-r]
       tracker tag -a <TAG> [-e <description>]
       tracker tag -d <TAG>


       List tags for local files or by the tag labels themselves if -t is used.

       It's also possible to manage tags with the -a and and -d options.

       The  FILE  argument  can  be  either a local path or a URI. It also does not have to be an
       absolute path.


       -t, --list
              List all tags. Results include the number of files associated with that tag and the
              tag's  unique  identifier. You can show the files associated with each tag by using

              The TAG arguments are optional. If no TAG  argument  is  specified,  all  tags  are
              listed.  If  one  or  more  TAGs  are  given,  either  matching tags are listed (OR
              condition). For example, this will match any tags named either foo, bar or baz:

              $ tracker-tag -t foo bar baz

       -s, --show-files
              Show the files associated with each tag. This option is  ONLY  available  WITH  the
              --list option.

       -a, --add=TAG
              Add  a tag with the name TAG. If no FILE arguments are specified, the tag is simply
              created (if it didn'talready exist) and no files are associated with  it.  Multiple
              FILE arguments can be specified.

       -d, --delete=TAG
              Delete  a  tag  with  the  name TAG. If no FILE arguments are specified, the tag is
              deleted for ALL files. If FILE arguments are specified, only those files  have  the
              TAG deleted.

       -e, --description=STRING
              This option ONLY applies when using --add and provides a description to go with the
              tag label according to STRING.

       -l, --limit=N
              Limit search to N results. The default is 512.

       -o, --offset=N
              Offset the search results by N. For  example,  start  at  item  number  10  in  the
              results. The default is 0.

       -r, --and-operator
              Use AND operator for search terms instead of OR (the default). For example:

              $ tracker-tag -s -t sliff sloff

              Should show files in the database that have both the sliff and sloff tags.


              This  option  allows  you  to  choose  which  backend you use for connecting to the
              database. This choice can limit your functionality. There are three settings.

              With "direct" the connection to the database is made directly to the file itself on
              the  disk,  there  is  no  intermediary daemon or process. The "direct" approach is
              purely read-only.

              With "bus" the tracker-store process is used to liase with the database queuing all
              requests  and  managing  the  connections  via  an  IPC  / D-Bus. This adds a small
              overhead BUT this is the only approach you can use if you  want  to  write  to  the

              With  "auto"  the  backend  is  decided  for  you,  much  like  it would be if this
              environment variable was undefined.
