Wrt to comment #23, I remember over a year ago in blog-posts or wherever some communication between Seif of Zeitgeist fame and the Tracker people about integration/linking together. There was talk of one of them pushing events to the other.
Certainly if Tracker pushed an event to Zeitgeist everytime it 'discovered' a new file, that would certainly help Zeitgeist to be aware of alot more of the user's filesystem. If the user is using Tracker, then resource-wise the user would be no worse off, since Tracker is already doing the crawling & monitoring anyway. However, of course Tracker itself is configured by the user to NOT crawl their whole filesystem, so for some users it is arguably still incomplete (though it would be good enough for my own uses). -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Zeitgeist Framework Team, which is subscribed to Zeitgeist Data-Sources. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/646724 Title: not all files show up in files-place Status in Unity: Triaged Status in Unity Files Place: Triaged Status in Zeitgeist Framework: Fix Released Status in Zeitgeist Data-Providers: Invalid Status in “unity-place-files” package in Ubuntu: Triaged Status in “zeitgeist” package in Ubuntu: Fix Released Bug description: The Unity interface, with its files-place feature for user access to files/documents etc. is really great. However there is a problem since the search feature relies wholly on zeitgeist (AFAIK), in the zeitgeist is not tracking everything. E.g. in openoffice, I create a new file (or open an existing one) from within openoffice itself. This file does not show up, presumably because openoffice does not (yet) push its activity to zeitgeist. I guess any number of other programs could suffer the same problem. For the average user, this is surely going to be confusing. They will create documents via legitimate means ('New ...' buttons in their applications), and then expect to be able to search for them in the Unity files-place interface. To avoid this confusion I would guess there really needs to be a filesystem watcher on the home dir (or key folders within it) so that zeitgeist is aware of activity caused by non-zeitgeist-aware applications. _______________________________________________ Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~zeitgeist Post to : firstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~zeitgeist More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
