Remove "tracker" from lxde

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution


As LXDE is intended to provide a LIGHTWEIGHT desktop environment, unnecessary bloats like tracker should not be provided with it.

Unfortunately the openSUSE pattern for LXDE contains Brasero, which automatically brings tracker as a dependency.

User benefit:

I wasn't aware Tracker was in the LXDE pattern. I use Tracker, but I don't mind installing it myself. Is there a CD burner besides Brasero?

Actually, on 12.2, the tracker dependencies have been largely changed, and only the libraries should be pulled in by Brasero, but not the tracker miners themselves.
Might be worthy to verify before too much change on the other parts are looked at.
