[Solved] Baloo_file_extractor dont stop after firefox update

Postby linuxsat » 2020-11-10 09:07

Hi,

I'm on Debian stretch with kde (plasma 5.8.6) on a dell latitude laptop, my system works greats since 2018!

Now I have an issue: I just update my local firefox to 82.0.3 version (I did that many times before without problem)
I dont know if it is related but just after the update baloo_file_extractor started running, loading the system (fans at max speed)

After rebooting, baloo_file_extractor restarted as soon as I logged in.

I disabled it using the kde system settings, but my files are not longer indexed.

Did someone has a solution in order to make that program run normally again?

Finally I answer to myself,

the point is to rebuilt the database for the file search.
In System settings>Workspace>Search>File Search uncheck the box Enable File Search
(this stop the Baloo demon)
In a terminal or in the file browser remove or rename (safer) the directory:
.local/share/baloo
Then reboot and in System settings >Workspace>Search>File Search check the box Enable File Search
The machine rebuilds the database (it takes a couple of minutes on my Dell 5480/i7/32Go)

That solved the issue

Thanks for those who read that post.
