Default Search application for desktop in Squeeze?

Hi

Beagle is apparently not actively developed anymore.

Does anyone have a tip on a good search application in Squeeze repository?

It must be able to index PDFs in order to be useful for me.


Best Regards,
Daniel Andersson

Have a look at tracker [1] it might be what you are after. I haven't
checked though if it is in active development.

"Tracker" was my choice for a GNOME desktop.

Alright!



I did a "aptitude install tracker-gui".



But when I run tracker-stats I get:

D-Bus session bus, Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include:
the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security
policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network
connection was broken.

Could not establish a D-Bus connection to Tracker

Is something missing?

Ensure you have started tracker daemon.

ps aux | grep tracker

That's fine.

"Reply" is not a "new" thread :-)

Different subjects require different threads (new ones, not just replying
and removing the old content).

Also, html formatted e-mails should be avoided in this list ;-)

Noted

A reboot got it started.

Now it's working like a charm.


Can I use Tracker to index mail in Icedove?

Good.

Last time I checked, nope ;-(

Add thunderbird support
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=498041

There was an addon for Thunderbird but IIRC, was not "officialy"
supported.

recoll. Very responsive and helpful maintainer, and I believe fewer
dependencies than tracker. Can handle PDF with an external helper
(pdftotext).

Thank you for the tip Celejar.

Recoll seems very powerful, but requires some work to install the helper
applications I would need.
