tracker-extract.cfg (5) - Linux Man Pages
DESCRIPTIONTracker'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.
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.
Maximum number of UTF-8 bytes to extract. Values range from 0 to 10485760.
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.
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.
EXAMPLESThe 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;
