    Wish Dolphin could pull metadata live from files like windows, baloo won't index my network shares.

      In $HOME/.config/baloofilerc you can add folders for Baloo to search and index.

      Code:
      folders[$e]=$HOME/,/path/to/your/share
      I don't have any network shares to test, but that should work.

        Great, Dolphin is my favorite file manager.

          In the meanwhile, Gwenview is still not fixed for HiDPI displays. I think I just will duplicate the bug report as the original one is inactive...

            Maybe KDE devs should focus on fixing Baloo first. It takes all my ram and locks my pc.

              The bug I'm waiting for now is this one: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=387313

              Looks like Martin tried to debug it, but didn't find the cause. I wonder if anyone is still working on it. It's a real annoyance which blocks switching to Wayland for me.

                I simply always disable files content search. It's very taxing and due to some bugs leads to major issues sometimes.

                  @Nate
                  Discover KDE Plasma 5.14.3 (at least and before)
                  The green animated 'circle' is rotating to the wrong side (not aligned with the arrowhead).

                    I had this as well and am following that bug, but I've started using kmail again in wayland and have noticed that issue is FAR less worse. It still comes up sometimes and sometimes the interface of kmail gets laggy for some reason, but it's more or less usable.
