problem in tracking activities in GAJ

Asked by doxao0710 on 2010-05-15

i hav installed the latest zeitgeist and GAJ from synastic package in ubuntu lucid

i spend most of the time listening to music (by rhythmbox and sometimes banshee) and surfing webs (using chrome) in my ubuntu machine. However, the GAJ doesnt record tracks that i played as well as webs that i visited. More over, when i open my pic using viewnior then move to the next pics by clicking the left/right button, GAJ only records the 1st pic that i 1st open in nautilus. As a result most of the time i open GAJ, it shows nothing but files that i opened (from nautilus) which are very little and do not reflect fully my activities. So what can i do to allow GAJ to record all of my activities?

You need to install data sources for applications. Right now you are only logging events from recently-used. Unfortunately it is not as easy as using the latest revision of zeitgeist and dataproviders since they switched to a new ontology. So you will need revision 38(or possibly lower) of zeitgeist-dataproviders/trunk and the latest zeitgeist release(not trunk)

Those version requirements should be removed when Journal is updated to the new ontology, but that is delayed until the zeitgeist developers create a migration script from their old ontology to the new one.


It seems current revision of zeitgeist-dataproviders is 124.
Zeitgeist current version on Ubuntu is is 0.5.2.

However, I still have this problem.
Is there any update about how to solve this problem ?

Last GAJ version is 0.6, you can try to upgrade to it.
Your zeitgeist-dataproviders are updated: are you sure that, e.g rhytmbox has the zeitgeist plugin activated??? (same for chrome/firefox and so on...).

Try this:
- open a terminal and type " zeitgeist-daemon --replace"
- listen to music or surf with chrome/firefox with the Zeitgeist plugin enabled

Result: In the terminal you should see an output similar to " Inserted 1 events...."

Can you help with this problem?
