Hi Sailors,

The utility which allows you to clean and re-indexing of the database of media files seems " broken ". When I click on this menu option, sailfish utilities, the system answer me " error " :-(

And it's the same thing on my Jolla 1 or the Intex (as Jolla C) of my wife.

Sailfish OS version : 2.1.2

Several of us on JollaFR have found this problem/bug !

Thanks a lot for your help and sorry for my poor english (thank you Yandex Translate)

[edit 2018 03 09] : the bug is not solve on Jolla 1 with tle last update 2.1.4 :-(

Confirmed (SailfishX

Workaround: erase (as root) all files in /home/nemo/.cache/tracker/ then reboot.

Same problem. In other Q&A the suggestion (as console/root) is to use tracker reset -r or similar.

Even after clearing cache when executing utilities i am getting Failed Clear Tracker. When trying to reindex.

Clear Failed

Yes, clearing the cache this way will always fail.

However, manually erasing all files in /home/nemo/.cache/tracker/ does the job (reboot required).

The release notes of 214-lapuanjoki say this is fixed. But on Sailfish X, this problem persists.
