[Tracker] Tacker not indexing

I run Ubuntu Feisty Fawn (7.04).
I've recently installed Tracker.

At this point, it seems not to be indexing. I don't know why.
Here are some observations.

Tracker starts automatcally at startup, as it should:
~$ ps aux | grep trac
user     5733  0.0  0.6  24656  3220 ?        SNl  06:36   0:00 trackerd
user     8557  0.0  0.1   2888   772 pts/0    R+   07:24   0:00 grep trac

While Tracker has 0 entities indexed, however, it is instantly 'done'  indexing:
08 Aug 2007, 06:37:15:350 - Fetching index stats...
08 Aug 2007, 06:37:15:352 - Total entities indexed : 0
08 Aug 2007, 06:37:15:354 - -----------------------

08 Aug 2007, 06:37:18:217 - starting indexing...
08 Aug 2007, 06:37:18:326 - flushing all words
08 Aug 2007, 06:37:18:327 - Finished indexing. Waiting for new events...

Indeed, trivial searches yield no results.

Here are two relevant lines from my tracker.cfg file:

(The /home value is temporary, while testing. What I mean to have eventually is simply /. That's why some directories outside /home are kept out)

In addition, I can't run tracker-preferences off of the command line:

~$ tracker-preferences
bash: tracker-preferences: command not found

I have since installed anything relevant I could find with apt-cache search. This included:

libdeskbar-tracker - metadata database, indexer and search tool - deskbar-applet plugin
libtrackerclient0 - metadata database, indexer and search tool - library
tracker-search-tool - metadata database, indexer and search tool - Gnome frontend
tracker-utils - metadata database, indexer and search tool - commandline tools

(some of which I guess I had already had, but some which were definitely new).

I had already had
tracker - metadata database, indexer and search tool.

I did not install
libtrackerclient-dev - metadata database, indexer and search tool - development files.

To no avail.

I must be missing something. How can I get Tracker to start indexing?
