Baloo is using a lot of CPU

Tue Apr 28, 2020 6:46 am
Hello, (hoping I'm posting this in the right section).

I'm using Kubuntu for a while, so I installed it on my computer work. But for some reasons, on this computer, Baloo is using a LOT of cpu. Every "fix" I found on the internet was disabling it. This is what I'm doing recently by killing it using htop, otherwise my computer is way too slow and I'm not able to work. It even makes the computer crash after a while because the CPU is overheating.

Here's a classic htop on the computer :

baloo_file_extractor is using ~100% of a core
baloorunner is using ~100% of an other core.

This permanently. How to prevent this ?
I'm using Kubuntu 18.04 with plasmashell 5.12.9. CPU : Intel Core [email protected]

Thanks for your help!

I strongly suggest you upgrade to Kubuntu 20.04 LTS, the run the following from the command line:
Code: Select all
balooctl purge
balooctl enable

Currently running Kubuntu 20.04, Plasma 5.18.5, Frameworks 5.68.0, Qt 5.12.8, kernel 5.4.0-34
FWIW: it is always useful to state the Plasma version and distribution when asking questions in this forum, makes it easier for us to help ...
