Debian 10 Disable Tracker
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
