I put some time into installing this from source today (~2hrs) and

From your distribution, it would probably have been easier to just
download the tarball and install it manually. That would have possibly
been less work.
My process was to remove the Ubuntu tracker version (sudo aptitude purge
tracker), and to install the one from source. I had to install a TON of
dependencies to get it to work:
sudo aptitude install libgmime-2.0-2a libgmime-2.0-2-dev dbus-glib-1-dev
libdbus-glib-1-dev libhal-dev libhal-storage-dev sqlite3-dev
libsqlite3-dev libexif-dev libgsf-1-dev libjpeg62-dev libtiff4-dev
libxine-dev libpoppler-dev libgstreamer0.10-dev libpoppler-glib-dev
libtotem-plparser-dev libunac1-dev libexempi-dev
This is mostly for metadata extraction.
After all that, I was able to install it, but now when I run trackerd,
it says I don't have trackerd installed. I do seem to have the new
tracker-info installed, so that's good. And the install went fine, which
The trackerd process is now spawned from DBus. It does exist, just not
in the patch. It should be in /usr/lib/tracker/trackerd OR
/usr/libexec/trackerd (depending on your distro).
I also couldn't sort out how to install the deskbar applet or the gtk
search query window, so those are now gone from my system. I didn't see
anything in the documentation about these either.
The tracker-search-tool should definitely be installed. The deskbar
applet needs some extra parameters when being built (the configure
summary should tell you what is built and what is not).
You should be able to either run tracker-search-tool from the console OR
run tracker-applet to start it from the notification area.
Thanks again for the help, hopefully I'll be able to contribute a bit
here eventually...I also tried to find people on IRC...but to no avail.
Yea, sorry about that. You should have better luck Monday morning ;)
