Then I'm not the only one to find annoying tracker ... useful like a
bee into helmet.

as it is not possible to remove it, I disable tracker globally for all

$ sudo dnf remove tracker-miners

$ sudo sed -i 's/X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=.*/X-GNOME-Autostart-
enabled=false/' /etc/xdg/autostart/tracker-store.desktop

$ yes|LANG=C tracker reset --hard

Note: when tracker will be update, the /etc/xdg/autostart/tracker-
store.desktop file it will not replaced and the new desktop file will
be renamed with .rpmnew extension

Hope this help
