An indexed search system is a very convenient tool for many computer-related tasks.
I have been using Meta Tracker for a few years on Ubuntu and have met a lot of issues:
- sometimes the Tracker icon just disappears from the notification area;
- sometimes the settings, that I provide to the Tracker are not applied: the Tracker can start indexing when I am on battery or it can forget to index some custom directories;
- sometimes it just does not find files which am sure are in the file system.
So, my question is: Is there any Linux (Gnome/KDE, does not matter) desktop search system that does not have all the above mentioned problems and is stable at work?
Edit: Tracker's nice feature that allows to tag files (integrates with Nautilus) is not stable as well. A tag-based search on a desktop system could be very useful though.
