Bug Description

One problem with Ubuntu not enabling tracker by default is that several apps depend on tracker for basic functionality.

A user installs gnome-photos, opens the app and sees none of the pictures from her ~/Pictures/ directory. She needs to log out and then log back in for the tracker services to start running and her app to work.

tracker uses systemd user services now.

Workaround
----------
Log out and log back in after installing tracker

Affected GNOME apps
-------------------
Books
Documents
