Recently Accessed files/folders are empty

Hi,

I already posted this in the Arch Linux forums but the problem couldn't be solved.

since some updates Dolphin has the new menu point "Recently Accessed" with the four items "Today", "Yesterday", "This Month" and "Last Month".

The idea sounds good but when I click on the items all I get is an empty window. The only exception is "Last Month" which only shows some folders from mid of October. Most of them are empty, though.

File indexing is activated and set to all folders in /home.

Any ideas how to get this working?

Is Nepomuk giving any errors concerning the indexing of your home directories? (Such as crashes, etc).

Nepomuk just says that "File indexer is idle". In the "Nepomuk/Strigi Server Configuration" I can't find any error messages.

Is there an additional log where I can look in?

Do you think this could be related to my problem with the search in Krunner? (viewtopic.php?f=66&t=108351)

The appropriate file would probably be ~/.xsession-errors.
Can you reproduce this under a new user? Also, can you verify that your /home file system is not mounted "noatime"?

Hi,

no, the noatime option isn't used:

Code: Select all
$ cat /etc/fstab
#
# /etc/fstab: static file system information
#
# <file system> <dir>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
tmpfs           /tmp    tmpfs   nodev,nosuid    0       0
/dev/sda3 / ext4 defaults 0 1
/dev/sda5 /home ext4 defaults,user_xattr 0 1
/dev/sda7 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/sda6 /home/thomas/Multimedia ext4 defaults 0 1

#NFS
<snip>


I created a new user and with this everything works as expected. I also noticed that different icons are used for the recently accessed files in the side panel: my current user shows the nepomuk icon, the new one has a clock instead.

Here's my xsession-errors: http://pastebin.com/iQTt3rTC

Hmm, unusual. Can you please try moving ~/.kde4/share/apps/nepomuk elsewhere while outside KDE for your normal user? This will force Nepomuk to completely rebuild it's index and should hopefully fix this.

I moved the folder as you suggested and it was recreated after the next log in. Now nepomuk says there are only 2 files in index but "File indexer is idle" :( I tried to disable and enable it again but with no success.

Any further ideas what could be wrong?

Some more things I don't get:

I went to "Akonadi Server Configuration" and made the "Test..." which shows some errors but I have no iedea how to solve them (e.g. "Nepomuk Query Server not available").

The Akonadi Server Configuration warnings/errors shown there can be ignored - they appear to be for a previous session rather than the current one.
The file indexer still being idle is concerning, especially if you have paths selected to be indexed and they have not been indexed.

Please paste the output of the following:
Code: Select all
ps aux | grep nepomuk

That appears to be normal. Unfortunately i'm kind of out of ideas here as to what could be the problem...
In System Settings > Desktop Search, please make sure "Removable media handling" is set to "Index all..." in case it somehow believes your /home is on a removable disk.

I've set the option to "Index all..." but now it indexes the files on my NAS although this folder is unchecked in the list of folders that I want to be indexed ;b

Are you sure it is indexing? What it could be doing instead is "watching files". You will be able to tell because the hard disk access will be coming from a "nepomukservicestub filewatcher" rather than "nepomukindexer" process.

If it is indexing files which it is not supposed to be then I would recommend checking for symlinks it could be following under your home directory.

Pretty much because the number in "xx files in index" increased very fast.

ls -la doesn't show any symlink.

Is it now indexing your home directory, or is it still ignoring that?
My suspicion is that your home directory is seen as a removable device for some reason or another.
