Don't see any issue here (on a gnome3 ppa + some extra install), if tracker isn't installed.
If tracker is installed then it does cause the crash. Seems like a bug but the problem may be on the Ubuntu (ppa) side. You should file one I guess.
If you wanted to keep totem git (3.9), & tracker then I'd go ahead & give it what it's looking for until fixed. (noting I am never too attached to any dev install..
Now i've no idea what the default should be for min. word length, or if the setting should exist,. (here I've no great use for tracker so not an issue.
So just an example - use gksudo gedit if you'd rather
insert/paste this at bottom as shown in screen ("<key type=.. & </key>" should line up, not sure this forum will cooperate
sudo nano /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/org.freedesktop.Tracker.FTS.gschema.xml
(then ctrl+o, enter, ctrl+x if using nano
<key type="i" name="min-word-length">
<range min="0" max="200"/>
<summary>Minimum length of a word to be indexed</summary>
<description>Words with less characters than this length will be ignored by the indexer.</description>
Then in terminal -
Should run without error, if you get an error then correct, there may be an unrelated warning
sudo glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas
screen running no issue except a grilo grl-upnp warning that's no interest here either
Ultimately better to get this fixed...
(also to note - I've found that make installs of totem are better if installed to /usr with totem packages removed first.
