I've installed the Gnome desktop and Nautilus on Clear Linux using a custom mix (without the desktop bundle), and have encountered the following error in the terminal when starting Nautilus:

(org.gnome.Nautilus:6833): GLib-GIO-ERROR **: 23:30:55.621: Settings schema 'org.freedesktop.Tracker.Miner.Files' is not installed
Trace/breakpoint trap (core dumped)

Nautilus will not start with nautilus or through the Files app. This seems like a dependencies issue as installing the desktop-apps bundle fixes it.

What causes this issue, and how can it be resolved?

You probably need to install gnome-photos. When I removed that package on ClearLinux I used to get the same error. After installing the bundle everything was okay.
