Are usr/lib/tracker-miner files valid?

I was just using htop to see what was running on my computer, and some of the files are titled tracker-miner. Does anyone know if these are valid programs running in the background?


On GNOME, yes :eyes:

They are names that give you instant paranoia :scream:

Afaik it's the service used for indexing files and other similar things, like baloo on KDE. And yeah, tracker has a quite bad connotation :joy:


It got me flapping!

Many thanks for the info.
