Smile Nautilus and tracker integration

Hi everyone,

I'm playing a little bit with tracker, and I particularly like the feature that enables you to tag files.

I was trying to see if there was a way to integrate it into Nautilus, and I stumbled upon this:
http://brib.wordpress.com/2007/10/18...-simple-steps/

which, of course, doesn't work for me! (Fedora 10)

I think it's a problem of paths or something like that, but I can't really figure out how to solve it.
One thing to note is that they say to install python-nautilus, which I couldn't find, so I installed nautilus-python instead... just a different name for different distros or are they actually 2 different packages?

Hope someone could help me to figure that out!

cheers
nico

I asked a friend with Ubuntu to test the script and it doesn't work for him either, so it's not a distro problem.

I'm wondering if the problem is in the script (if you look, the page I linked is from 2007, maybe something changed in Nautilus from back than that prevents the script to work properly).

I downloaded the script from a different source and now I get the Tags tab and can search for tags!

Here's the link
wiki.ubuntuusers.de/_attachment?target=Tracker%2Ftracker-tags-tab.py

And here's the diff between the two scripts

Code:
44c44
<                            '/org/freedesktop/Tracker')
---
>                            '/org/freedesktop/tracker')
46,49c46
< 
<       obj_kw = bus.get_object('org.freedesktop.Tracker',
<                               '/org/freedesktop/Tracker/Keywords')
<       self.keywords = dbus.Interface(obj_kw, 'org.freedesktop.Tracker.Keywords')
---
>       self.keywords = dbus.Interface(obj, 'org.freedesktop.Tracker.Keywords')

Re: Nautilus and tracker integration

By sheer chance, I just found out how to search for tracker tags in nautilus (those are most easily added with 'tracker-tag -a').

Stop beagle if it is running.
Start 'nautilus --browser'.
Ctrl-F, and type tagourTag

I really simply tried a bunch of things out of frustration this morning and this one worked.

This search can be added to Nautilus Side Pane as a bookmark. Click on the button on the left of search bar This will switch from search to "Go To location". Click on the button again. This will turn the search bar into a solid box that will say 'Search for "tagourTag"'. Now this can be dragged to the Side Pane.

Yesterday, found a similar way of doing this in KDE 4.4. This requires nepomuk to be enabled. File tags can be added in dolphin. Then one can add a "Folder View" widget to the desktop. In its preferences, click on Location and enter

"nepomuksearch:/hasTag=YourTag1 OR hasTag=YourTag2"

(-hasTag to exclude is supposed to work too)

The plasma widget will now show files that match the tags. Judging by google search, "=" in this command used to be ":" in earlier versions of KDE. The command can also be entered from dolphin (search bar) and konqueror.

These things are nice but also apparently well hidden!

Re: Nautilus and tracker integration

Correct me if I'm wrong but does this tracker the same with beagle?
I have researched about the Nautilus and the tracker integration and from what I have read they are two different thing. Here's a link where you can find more info about your problem https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=501227. hope this helped.
