    zeitgeist-fts using lots of memory

    zeitgeist-fts is using over 100MB of memory, not long after doing a search for files in the dash(it only does this for file searches, not application, or music lenses).

    Any idea as to why this is?

    I think it might be related to this bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/zeitgeist...ns/+bug/757727

    Problem is, it was reported like a year ago. I'll post in it though, maybe it will get more attention that way.

    Lightbulb Re: zeitgeist-fts using lots of memory

    I had the same problem - zeitgeist eating up to 80% of my memory, (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS). Tried to uninstall it, but it came back like a bad penny - even though it was supposedly not installed so I could uninstall it again.

    My solution was to take ownership of /usr/bin/zeitgeist* and make it *not* executable. I figure if it can't Execute, it won't be in my processes eating my RAM.

    I used

    sudo chown [username] /usr/bin/zeitgeist*

    and opened the Properties of the files, under Permissions un-checked the Executable box.

    Could have probably just used

    sudo chmod a-x /usr/bin/zeitgeist* (IF that's the correct syntax)

    but I wasn't convinced it would stay gone unless I was the owner. I have only been away from Windows since Precise came out, and I was trying to cover all bases.

    So far, no problems. I do expect to get an error here or there when a program tries to run it, but everything seems to be working ok. Hope this helps someone else.

    (Update: This solution worked for me. After performing the fix I mentioned, I have not had one instance of zeitgeist reloading, nor have I had problems with programs eating my RAM. I have seen no adverse effects or error messages, and I am using my computers just like I always did before the fix.)

    Re: zeitgeist-fts using lots of memory

    I have this problem immediately after logging in. Using 1.1 gb mem, unineruptible process.
    Can anyone tell me what this process is doing?

    EDIT:
    I killed this process and now I can use my computer again
    The problem still needs fixing of course.
