View Full Version : virt: tracker-miner-fs could not open file

Jul 02 14:30:54 f19s.local /etc/gdm/Xsession[3385]: (tracker-miner-fs:3744): Tracker-WARNING **: Could not open 'file:///home/chris/Documents/f19_1.img'

Fedora 19, using virt-manager. The VM's disk image is in /home rather than the default location so I wonder if this is a permissions problem, but I don't know why Xsession has a problem with this. qemu has permission to read/write the image, and it seems to be working OK except for the journal filling up with a bunch of these warning entries.

So this is a Gnome file indexer, best as I can determine. If I run gnome-session-properties and find the tracker options, and uncheck them, it no longer runs, and I no longer get these messages in journal.

However, I haven't figured out a way to keep the tracker on, but either exclude the virt-manager image file from scanning, or set the permissions on it in a way that the tracker doesn't get pissy.
