NAME

       tracker.cfg - configuration file for the trackerd search daemon

DESCRIPTION

       The tracker.cfg file resides in the $HOME/.config/tracker directory.

       The  file  is  organized  in  sections, each section having a number of
       related options.

   Comments
       Empty lines and those starting with ; or # are ignored.

   Value Types
       VALUE  Denotes a positive integer.

       BOOLEAN
              Denotes either true or false.

       Any other value
              Any special keyword is to be replaced by one of  the  documented
              valid values, e.g. pathnames or language codes.

EXAMPLE

       [General]

       Verbosity=0

       LowMemoryMode=false

Sections

   General
       This section may contain general settings for trackerd.

       Verbosity=VALUE
              Specifies  how  verbose trackerd should be logging. VALUE can be
              one of 0 through 3.

              0      Show no but  error  and  critical  output,  this  is  the
                     default behavior.

              1      Show minimal output, i.e. not just errors.

              2      Show verbose output.

              3      Show  debugging output, enable this only if you know what
                     you are doing.

       LowMemoryMode=BOOLEAN
              Enables low memory mode. Tracker may be slightly  less  fast  at
              indexing/search but also needs less system memory.

       InitialSleep=VALUE
              Sets  the  initial  sleep time for trackerd. This is a number of
              seconds that trackerd wait before indexing.

       NFSLocking=BOOLEAN
              Set to TRUE when the home directory is in a NFS filesystem.

   Watches
       WatchDirectoryRoots=DIRECTORY[;MORE;DIRECTORIES]
              Sets the directories trackerd should watch and  index.  Defaults
              to the users home directory.

       NoWatchDirectory=DIRECTORY[;MORE;DIRECTORIES]
              Sets  directories  trackerd  should  ignore,  i.e.  not index or
              watch.

       CrawlDirectory=DIRECTORY[;MORE;DIRECTORIES]
              Sets directories trackerd should index once but  not  watch  for
              changes.

       EnableWatching=BOOLEAN
              Enables or disables watching of directories, i.e. re-index files
              when they change.

   Indexing
       This section may contain indexing related options.

       Throttle=VALUE
              Sets the throttling value for the  Indexer.  VALUE  can  be  any
              number  from  0  to  20  whereas higher values decrease indexing
              speed.

       EnableIndexing=BOOLEAN
              Enable or disable the indexer.

       EnableFileContentIndexing=BOOLEAN
              Enable or disable indexing of files text contents.

       EnableThumbnails=BOOLEAN
              Enable or disable the generation of thumbnails.

       DisabledModules=MODULENAME[;MORE;MODULENAMES]
              List   of   disable   modules   (The   modules   are   kept   in

              List of partial file patterns  (glob)  separated  by  semicolons
              that  specify  files  not  to  index.  Only basic metadata (i.e.
              information retrieved by stat(2)) is indexed.

       MinWordLength=VALUE
              Sets the minimum word length to index. Words  having  less  then
              VALUE characters will not be indexed.

       MaxWordLength=VALUE
              Sets  the  maximum  word length to index. Words having more then
              VALUE characters will not be indexed.

       Language=LANGCODE
              Sets the language specific stemmer and  stopword  list  to  use.
