Debian 10 Disable Tracker

This works.

There are a lot of examples out there that don’t work. I found that an additional edit (bottom) made all the difference. These are the typical changes you’ll find online.

tracker daemon -t
cp -v /etc/xdg/autostart/tracker-*.desktop ./
for FILE in tracker-*.desktop; do echo Hidden=true >> $FILE; done
rm -rf ~/.cache/tracker ~/.local/share/tracker

But here is the change that made all the difference for me. Edit all the tracker files and change X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled to False. re.

sudo vi /etc/xdg/autostart/tracker-miner-apps.desktop

X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=false
