tracker-applet disappeared

Bug #283681 reported by huiii
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
tracker (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: tracker

This is happening on Ubuntu Hardy 8.04 64bit.
tracker version 0.6.6-0ubuntu3.8.04.1
tracker is enabled and when session starts, after login, tracker-applet icon appears in gnome-panel-system-tray beside the other icons, like power, bluetooth, network, sound, etc...
Tracker was working fine for nearly half a year now, till some days ago, when the tracker-applet icon somehow disappeared from the gnome-panel and never came back.

now i filed a new bug-report, since the other bugreports similar to this one are at the end not the same.

if i do
$ ps -e |grep tracker
i get nothing wierd:
trackerd and tracker-applet are working, no double-processes or so.
tracker-search-tool works from terminal and it is still working fine.
trackerd starts at session-start and indexes like always.

it is just that stupid icon that is gone.
i tried a lot of stuff, but its a waste of time.
starting tracker-applet with sudo leads to the same, no icon.

the file tracker-applet.cfg shows AutoHideIcon=false.
what can i do?
what have i done?

i will see how well this went at the end of the day.
if you hear nothing from me, everything is fine.

I know this may appear to be a dumb question, but... Did you have tracker-applet enabled in Sessions? I had a similar issue some days ago. I found that tracker-applet was missing form Sessions. Both trackerd and tracker-applet must be running together. Please let us know if this was not your experience.
