Bug Description

After updating to Kubuntu 14.04 everything goes slow. I saw it was baloo file indexer, but allows it to work for two days thinking that after indexing it will not consume so many resources. After two days I gave up. And there is not gui switch do disable it. I have blacklisted my home dir and added
[Basic Settings]
to ~/.kde/share/config/baloofilerc.
Now everything is as quick as in previous version. I think this is a bug.

My hardware:
AMD Turion(tm) 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-62
Kingston SSDNow V Series 64GB

lsb_release -rd:

Hi there!

Thanks for reporting this bug! Your bug seems to be a problem with the KDE program itself, and not with our KDE packages. While we appreciate your issue, it would be better if it was tracked at, so that the KDE developers can deal with this speedily and have direct communication with you as the reporter for more effective debugging.
