File manager - no search results


I don’t get any search results when searching for any files through the file manager search box - It’s “Searching…” for hours - but without any results showing up…

Is there any way to restart or check indexing?

Cheers, Roman

Which file manager?

Sorry, I use Gnome, so it’s the default file manager “Files” aka “Nautilus”.

Seems that others have the same issue:

Tracker3 search results from cli are instantly showing up in the terminal, but in Nautilus it’s “Searching …” endlessly.

Try disable full text search (FTS)

gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.preferences fts-enabled false

nautilus -q or killall nautilus and try again.
