After a reboot, gallery app is empty. Seems like tracker index didn't start.

Could start indexing by command "tracker-control -es".

Does running that index command also work for letting new pictures show up in android apps? It is really annoying having to reboot the phone or restart the alien-dalvik just to send a picture over whatsapp.

Should work. Just try it. Does not harm anything by starting it manually.

Same here. I think it has something to do with when the sdcard gets mounted during boot. I use subvolumes for pictures etc. These folders are empty before the sdcard gets mounted. So to get pictures to show up I need to manually issue tracker-control -krs as nemo from fingerterm after boot. This 'bug' came with
