Can I Turn Off Krunner's Email Indexing?

Post by toomanyquestions » Wed Sep 09, 2015 2:43 pm

Is there a way to stop Krunner from finding indexed messages from Kmail? I saw someone suggest turning off Krunner's desktop search functionality, but that's what makes Krunner so great! Any ideas?

Looks like desktop search could be OFF

general KDE info
https://userbase.kde.org/Nepomuk#Indexing_files
  • Indexing files
    Search does not index every file on the hard drive. Its default configuration in most Linux distributions excludes some common patterns for backup files and configuration directories. You can change this in
    System Settings -> Desktop Search.
    Add folders to be excluded. If you want to turn off indexing of files entirely, just add your home folder there.


    In System Settings you can also control whether Search indexes files on removable media such as USB drives and CD-ROMs. In KDE Applications 4.13 this is not available, removable media are not indexed. Future versions are planned to reintroduce this functionality.

Thanks - this sounds like it will work!
