Ubuntu: disable indexing

If you are a developer the last thing you want running on your system is an indexing daemon, that keeps the cpu busy and eats precious i/o. If you’re like me, you want to get rid of it as soon as you can! Yes, we all know that the thing is “configurable”, but anyway it keeps eating resources and it will also slow down your desktop (if you have one)
So, just go to synaptic (or apt. if you are a command line guy) and remove “tracker” and related dependencies. Be sure to remove also “beagle”, you may have installed in some previous life 🙂
