Ubuntu – tracker-miner-fs ubuntu 19.10


I upgraded to Ubuntu 19.10 and, whenever I turn on the PC, a tracker-miner-fs error pops up and wants me to report it to Ubuntu.

Does anyone know how to solve this? Is it "normal"?

  • I had the same issue after upgrading to 19.10.

    tracker-miner-fs is part of GNOME and indexes your files. See the description here.

    A quick fix that is linked/mentioned in the upstream issue is to reset the tracker by deleting the folders ~/.cache/tracker and ~/.local/share/tracker.

    After that the program starts without any issue.
