Upgrading to Oneiric 11.10 Beta 1 – Dealing with Zeitgeist (zeitgeist kills kittens as well)
Uninstalling Zeitgeist can cause issues as it is used by Unity and expected to be available. Removal could be a problem in the future as other programs may look for it being installed.
There are also privacy concerns, see zeitgeist kills kittens as well.
But there is a simple solution:
- Remove the old databases and use the “–replace” argument to generate new files.
- Then change permissions so no one can read or write to them. :-)
# Delete previous logging.
# Render Zeitgeist illiterate - cannot read or write
chmod -rw ~/.local/share/zeitgeist/activity.sqlite*
Note: In place of the rm command I navigated to the folder
and deleted everything manually.
