Description


tracker-fts.cfg(5)              Tracker Manual              tracker-fts.cfg(5)



NAME
       tracker-fts.cfg


SYNOPSIS
       $HOME/.config/tracker/tracker-fts.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  Mi-
       crosoft'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  con-
       fig files, only different values are. This man page describes what keys
       and values can be used.

       See EXAMPLES for a general overview.


OPTIONS
       max-word-length=30

              Words with more characters than this length will be ignored by the indexer.
              Values range from 0 to 200.




       max-words-to-index=10000

              Indexer will read only this maximum number of words from a single document.



       enable-stemmer=false

              Simplify the words to their root to provide more results. E.g. 'shelves' and 'shelf' to 'shel'



       enable-unaccent=true

              Translate accented characters to the equivalent unaccented. E.g. 'Ida' to 'Idea' for improved matching.



       ignore-numbers=true

              If enabled, numbers will not be indexed.



       ignore-stop-words=true

              If enabled, the words listed in the stop-words list are ignored. E.g. common words like 'the', 'yes', 'no', etc.




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

           [General]
           max-word-length=30;
           max-words-to-index=10000;
           enable-stemmer=false;
           enable-unaccent=true;
           ignore-numbers=true;
           ignore-stop-words=true;
