Doesn't work in Cinnamon 4.0.9 on Linux Mint 19.1 as tracker-gui is not longer provided in the repos.

Is there any intention to get that fixed? I am currently searching for a desktop-search-tool. Desktop Environment is cinnamon (because I was getting extremely annoyed with gnome3 ...)

Works well on 18.3 Cinnamon if you install the missing dependencies. This is not very obvious though if you don't access this website.
