I had an old Opensuse 11.4 64bit pc running on a KDE Desktop and
started to used it for about two weeks.
The systems was slower then previous Opensuse installs and I was
starting to get annoyed by it. I had to run htop and system Monitor to
find out what was wrong and the culprit was ... tracker.

Tracker "eats" about 5% cpu even after a long time running his database
On boot the thing takes 100% CPU.
After searching this forum I made the right decision to remove it
Now the KDE startup/login is Much faster and even programs like Opera
got much better startup times.
I really recommend people to Uninstall Tracker, specially in systems
that are more limited then a full blown desktop.

Tracker being a Gnome app shouldn't be installed by default with KDE,
you must of had Gnome installed in parallel or earlier

If you need desktop search in KDE see

openSUSE 12.1 x64, KDE 4.8.x, Opera developer build
Nvidia 9500gt running latest proprietary Nvidia drivers (self-compiled)

I always install several desktop environments, in order to be able to
choose and test stuff.
And I really do not need any desktop search.
Other desktop I installed was lxde that I find very simple and
effective for things like software development.
But I really prefer KDE as a Desktop environment so I had to see what
was going on with the slowness of the thing :)

Thanks for the tip. I just noted the other day that it's installed on an
old slow machine I have running XFCE, and in addition to consuming the
CPU it seemed to cause at least one problem with Firefox. Think I'll get
rid of it.

I have created a tutorial for romanian users here in order to delete and
disable Tracker 'Tutorial: dezactivare Meta Tracker sub openSUSE | Linux
pentru incepatori' (;) here is
how you suppose to do:
1. open Yast -> Software management -> in search you type tracker-miner
and delete all packages he find with one exception
2. open a terminal and go to /etc/xdg/autostart
3. using a text editor like pico for e.g, edit each tracker-*.desktop
and add to the end of each file Hidden=true
4. save settings and execute log out and log in in to your desktop

No more Tracker at startup :)

Just go to the xfce4-settings (settings-manager)
In  session and startup-autostart applications
Untick tracker.

In my case before with xfce I removed tracker in yast software
