Question How Do I Delete Tracker Search List?


How do I delete the search list, built over time, without uninstalling the desktop search application Tracker?

I find this applet very useful, but I want to just pare down the list a bit.

I have Tracker 1.8.3-1 installed.

Install, and use, tracker-preferences.
A stupid GUI-only interface - no simple config file edit supported. The dev insists we (i.e. users) won't need it. What a pinhead.

Dependencies resolved.
Nothing to do.
Complete!
