Installation of Tracker

Install Tracker by running the following commands:

mkdir build &&
cd    build &&

meson --prefix=/usr      \
      --buildtype=release \
      -Ddocs=false       \
      -Dman=false        \
      -Dsystemd_user_services=false .. &&
ninja

To test the results, issue: ninja test. The tests should be run from a graphical session. One test, tracker:functional/portal, is known to timeout.

Now, as the root user:

ninja install

Command Explanations

--buildtype=release: Specify a buildtype suitable for stable releases of the package, as the default may produce unoptimized binaries.

-Ddocs=false: This switch prevents the build process from generating API documentation. Omit this switch if you have GTK-Doc-1.33.2 installed and wish to generate and install the API documentation.

-Dman=false: This switch prevents the build process from generating man pages. Omit this switch if you have asciidoc-10.0.2 installed and wish to generate and install the man pages.

-Dsystemd_user_services=false: This switch prevents the build process from installing systemd user services since they are useless on SysV systems.
