Hi all,

I downloaded and successfully compiled the latest tracker 0.7.17.
I set some options using the system>preferences>search and indexing
(ubuntu 9.10).
however, tracker didnt start and calling trackerd and the cli I got
the message that there was no such command.

You terminate tracker with
$ tracker-control -t

Start it with 
$ tracker-control -s

After restaring it, you must start the icon with
$ tracker-status-icon &

To watch the progress (same info you get clicking on the icon)
$ tracker-status

after restarting the computer I get the animated magnifying glass
leftclick on the icon gets me applications 100% and file system 0%.
The files in /home/bjorn/.cache/tracker are not changing size, so I
think tracker is not working, despite the animated icon?

Throthling might be at work here... Leave the pc alone for half a minute
and see if it pickups.

Could someone tell me how to proceed? The instructions on the
metatracker website seem outdated?
I do not have any of the ubuntu tracker packages installed:

None of the 0.6.x package are neccesary (i would avoid them)

I would like to write a guide for compiling, installing and using the
modern versions of tracker for people who are not developers that I
could contribute to the tracker website.

Great idea, i could've used it :)
