tracker-extract.cfg (5) - Linux Man Pages

NAME

tracker-extract.cfg

SYNOPSIS

$HOME/.config/tracker/tracker-extract.cfg

DESCRIPTION

Tracker's configuration is built on top of GSettings, part of GLib. This means that there is a proper schema for configurations and they can be viewed (normally) using the dconf-editor tool.

Tracker also allows switching from the GSettings database, used by most (cross) desktop applications, to a key/value formatted files (like Microsoft's INI format). To do this, the environment variable TRACKER_USE_CONFIG_FILES must be defined before running the application using that configuration.

So where is this configuration? Well, normally they're stored in $HOME/.config/tracker/, however, default values are not stored to config files, only different values are. This man page describes what keys and values can be used.

See EXAMPLES for a general overview.

OPTIONS

verbosity='errors'
Log verbosity.

sched-idle='first-index'
The scheduler is the kernel component that decides which runnable application will be executed by the CPU next. Each application has an associated scheduling policy and priority.

max-bytes=1048576
Maximum number of UTF-8 bytes to extract.
Values range from 0 to 10485760.

max-media-art-width=0
Maximum width in pixels for any media art extracted. Anything bigger is resized. Set to -1 to disable saving media art from files. Setting to 0 sets no limit on the media art width.
Values range from -1 to 2048.

wait-for-miner-fs=false
When true, tracker-extract will wait for tracker-miner-fs to be done crawling before extracting meta-data. This option is useful on constrained environment where it is important to list files as fast as possible and can wait to get meta-data later.

EXAMPLES

The top level group is "General". The default configuration (if saved to tracker-extract.cfg), would look like:

    [General]
    verbosity='errors';
    sched-idle='first-index';
    max-bytes=1048576;
    max-media-art-width=0;
    wait-for-miner-fs=false;
